Capital Christmas Tree from Minnesota

Did you know????

The 2014 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree came from northern Minnesota? It was harvested from the Chippewa National Forest in Minnesota. Companion trees were provided by the Minnesota Tree Growers Association to be placed inside offices in Washington DC. 

The Capitol Christmas Tree should not to be confused with the National Christmas Tree , which is planted near the White House and lighted every year by the president and first lady. The Speaker of the House officially lights the Capitol Christmas Tree.  Just an FYI

Black Friday?? Cyber Monday??

 I guess we missed them both. But this is just a quick reminder that a family vacation is a great gift. Spending time together with friends and family is a time to be cherished. Toys, clothes and technology may be the most “requested” gifts. But those memories we make over the years are the gifts we look back on and really value. Ok the gift giving push is over. 🙂
