The 2013 National Christmas Tree Lighting Opening Ceremony, DC
OverviewThe Opening Ceremony of the Lighting of the National Christmas is a time-honored holiday tradition which includes the illumination of the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse just south of the White House. Nationally known entertainers and the United States Marine Corps Band add to the celebratory evening in which the President brings a message of peace to the nation and the world. With the White House as a back drop, in what becomes the "Christmas Pathway of Peace," the National Christmas Tree and 56 smaller trees--one for each state, five territories and the District of Columbia--serve as the event focal point.
