White House Christmas Tree Decorated By The Obamas

The White House Christmas Tree was delivered to the Obama family last week, and Michelle Obama, her daughters, and almost 100 volunteers have been busy decorating the 'Douglas Fir' ready for the festive season, reports the UK's Daily Mail. The tree, which has been grown in Pennsylvania and is eighteen-and-a-half feet high, has taken nearly four days to decorate.
As well as helping to dress their own tree, the Obamas will turn on the lights of the National Christmas Tree in Washington DC's Presidents Park on Thursday (9th December 2010). The event is set to be streamed live on the Internet and will be hosted by the actor and hip-hop star Common, while also featuring performances from the likes of Bb King, Maroon 5, and Sara Bareilles. Michelle Obama has opted for a simple theme for the White House's tree, with emphasis being placed on friends, family, children, and music. Much of the decorations are made from recycled or reusable materials such as wood, newspapers and magazines.
The Obama's decorations also include a model of the Obama's family dog 'Bo' made from pipe cleaners, which sits next to a replica of the White House made from gingerbread.
