Come See the Christmas Tree

Yeah, I know it’s not yet Halloween, but it’s not too early to mark November 8th on your calendar. For the first time ever, the Capitol Christmas tree to be displayed in Washington DC is coming from Washington state, and will be on display on November 8th in Vancouver on Main Street (between 8th and 9th).

For more information on the tree, or the fact that schoolchildren from the area get to create the decorations, check out the official website.

What I want to know is this: if Washington is “The Evergreen State”, how come this is the first time in the 42 year history of the Capitol tree program that we’ve supplied the tree?

    Yeah, according to this site:
    you guys were a distant sixth in Christmas tree harvest. Oregon harvest over 3.5 times as many as you.

    I wonder why… I’m sure they grow just as well up there?
