  1. O, Christmas Tree: Michelle Obama, daughters, Bo, receive White House Christmas tree

    WASHINGTON — It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the White House.

    Michelle Obama continued a decades-old tradition the day after Thanksgiving as she, daughters Malia and Sasha, and Bo, the family dog, witnessed the arrival of an 18-and-a-half-foot balsam fir tree from Wisconsin, hauled up the driveway by horse-drawn wagon and delivered to their doorstep Friday.

    The Obamas walked around the carriage and inspected the tree before giving it a thumbs-up. But that was merely a formality; White House staffers traveled to Wisconsin last month and picked out that tree.

    The fir is headed for the oval-shaped Blue Room, where it will become the centerpiece of the White House Christmas decorations. It will be decorated to honor Blue Star families, those with a loved one who has served or currently is serving in the armed forces.

    The tree came from Schroeder’s Forevergreens near Neshkoro, Wis., owned by Tom and Sue Schroeder. It’s the first time one of their trees has made it to the White House. The couple earned the honor after winning a national contest — on their fourth try — sponsored by the National Christmas Tree Association.
