WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 (UPI) — Alongside family canines Bo and Sunny, First Lady Michelle Obama greeted the White Residence Christmas tree. The official vacation fir was shipped by way of horse and buggy to the White House’s North Portico.
The tree, a Fraser fir measuring 19 toes tall, will be erected in the Blue Area and embellished for the holiday period.
White House personnel traveled to a farm in Lansdale, Pennsylvania to decide on the tree. Farm proprietors Jay and Glenn Bustard then produced a journey to the White Property to produce the tree personally.
“They appeared above four trees quite thoroughly,” Jay Bustard explained in a push release. “Like most individuals, but probably more so for them, they are very certain about the tree they want. I think they picked a great one.”
“Customers of the Nationwide Xmas Tree Affiliation have offered the formal White House Xmas Tree for exhibit in the Blue Room since 1966,” the White Property said in a assertion.
