U.S. Marine Band Proclaims, “Glory to the Newborn King” at White House Christmas Tree Ceremony
First Lady Melania Trump welcomed the arrival of the official 2020 White House Christmas tree on Monday.
The tree arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in a horse-drawn carriage while the United States Marine Corps Band performed a selection of traditional Christmas carols including ‘O Christmas Tree’, ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’, and ‘Hark The Herald Angels Sing’.
“Since 1966, the arrival of the White House Christmas Tree has become an iconic holiday tradition. This year’s tree, [is] a lovely 18 1/2 foot Fraser Fir from Dan and Bryan Trees of West Virginia,” the First Lady wrote in a tweet.
The tree is currently being decorated in preparation for the annual White House Christmas celebration and parties.
