Behind the scenes at the National Christmas Tree lighting

Behind the scenes at the National Christmas Tree lighting

The National Christmas Tree is a great holiday tradition in the D.C. area and best of all, it's free! I was lucky enough to get access as preparations were made for the tree lighting event that took place December 9. The event will be televised on public television and will feature some terrific musical performances including the great B.B. King, Maroon 5, Sara Bareilles, and Ingrid Michaelson. I want to single out 10 year old Jackie Evancho, who gives an amazing rendition of "O Holy Night." Catching the broadcast is worth it for that alone.
