WASHINGTON (WNEW) — The day after Thanksgiving isn’t just about shopping, it’s also a time to start decorating for the holidays and that’s exactly what the first family did Friday as they welcomed the White House Christmas tree.

Two horses pulled a wagon carrying an 18-and-a-half-foot Douglas Fir up to the North Portico, continuing a tradition that dates back to 1966.

First Lady Michelle Obama came out to receive it, along with daughters Sasha and Malia and the family dogs, Bo and Sunny.

The tree will be on display in the Blue Room throughout the holidays. It comes from Crystal Spring Tree Farm in Lehighton, Penn.
