It’s the most wonderful time of the year … or at least – it almost is!
The White House Christmas Tree is ready to sparkle in the night sky. The lighting ceremony is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday evening, featuring The Obamas and musical guests Sheryl Crow, Common, and Ray LaMontagne. Click here for a complete list of the night’s performers.
This year’s tree will be draped in 750 strings of white LED lights while those 2,800 folks who got seats and the 7,000 dedicated American’s who nabbed “standing room only” tickets huddle together for warmth, basking in the glow of the illuminated blue spruce.
You can catch entire ceremony from the warmth of your own living room live on WETA – TV or at WETA’s website.
