Michelle Obama, Daughters Welcome White House Christmas Tree

by at . Comments

The spirit of Christmas is already flowing through the White House.

Michelle Obama, daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, and Portuguese water dog Bo welcomed the family's tree to the historic residence Friday afternoon:

White House Christmas Tree

The White House Christmas tree is a 19-foot Fraser fir from Peak Farms in Jefferson, N.C.

It arrived on a red and green wagon drawn by two Clydesdale horses while the Marine Band played the classic carol "Oh Christmas Tree." Festive!

According to longstanding tradition, the tree will be displayed in the White House's Blue Room and the First Lady will select and supervise the decorating.

She'll do a fine job, no doubt. After sampling the scent of the tree's needles, Michelle Obama reportedly gave a thumbs-up and told onlookers, "It's a go."

On November 6, voters said the same to another four years for the First Couple.
