US First Lady Receives White House Christmas Tree

November 28, 2011

U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama received the official White House Christmas tree Friday.

Mrs. Obama inspected the tree with daughters Sasha and Malia and family dog Bo, after it was delivered on a horse-drawn carriage.

After walking around the nearly 5.8-meter tree, the Obamas gave a thumbs-up signifying their approval.

The tree comes from a Wisconsin farming couple, Sue and Tom Schroeder, who won a contest run by the National Christmas Tree Association to earn the honor.

The association says its members have presented the official tree for display in the White House Blue Room since 1966.
