First Lady and Youngest Grandson Receive White House Christmas Tree

First Lady Dr. Jill Biden received the Christmas tree for the White House on Monday November 22, as part of the 56-year tradition involving the winner of the National Christmas Tree Contest ceremoniously presenting the tree to the first lady in the days leading up to Thanksgiving.

Dr. Biden and grandson Beau watched the 18-foot Fraser fir as it was delivered to the White House by two Clydesdale horses. The tree came from North Carolina, grown by Rusty and Beau Estes, who have provided two other trees for the White House in the past. North Carolina has grown 13 of trees displayed at the White House since this competition began.
