WASHINGTON - Lots of people will spend the weekend after Thanksgiving decorating for Christmas, and that includes the First Family. First Lady Michelle Obama welcomed the official White House Christmas tree on Friday morning. The tree, an 18-foot Fraser fir, will be on display in the Blue Room this holiday season.
The tree was grown by Jay and Glenn Bustard of Lansdale, Pennsylvania, and they were on hand Friday morning to deliver the tree to Mrs. Obama.
Members of the National Christmas Tree Association have presented the official White House Christmas Tree for display in the Blue Room since 1966.
