Christmas Tree From WI Farm Welcomed to White House by Melania & Barron Trump
Christmas season has officially started at the White House, and decorations are starting to go up around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Melania and Barron Trump will accept a 19 1/2-foot Balsam fir on Monday to be placed in the White House Blue Room, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced Monday.
A Wisconsin Christmas tree farm won the 2017 National Christmas Tree Association contest to present a tree in a horse-drawn wagon to the White House.
Jim and Diane Chapman, owners of Silent Night Evergreens in Endeavor, Wisconsin, won the contest in 1998 and 2003 as well.
The NCTA has presented the official White House Christmas tree on display inside since 1966.
