Christmas Tree Friday

President Obama will lay low Friday with no events on the schedule. But first Lady Michelle Obama will officially usher in the beginning of the Holiday season here at the White House at 11:00 a.m. ET when she receives the White House Christmas Tree.

This year's tree comes from Schroeder's Evergreens farm near Neshkoro, Wisconsin. Selected in early October, it is a 19-foot tall balsam fir. It will be displayed in the Blue Room. According to the White House, members of the National Christmas Tree Association have presented the official White House Christmas Tree for display since 1966.
