WHITE HOUSE 2007 ORNAMENT: THE NATIONAL CHRISTMAS TREE

In November, 1923, First Lady Grace Coolidge gave permission for the District of Columbia Public Schools to erect a Christmas tree on the Ellipse south of the White House. The organizers named the tree the "National Christmas Tree." From 1924 to 1953, live trees in various locations around and on the White House grounds were lit on Christmas Eve. In 195, the ceremony returned to the Ellipse with an expanded focus. Local civic and business groups created the "Christmas Pageant of Peace." Smaller live trees representing the 50 states, 5 territories, and the District of Columbia, formed a "Pathway of Peace." Central to the season's celebration is the living National Christmas Tree, a Colorado blue spruce from York, Pennsylvania, planted on the ellipse on October 20, 1978.
