National Christmas Tree on the White House lawn

On a cold December evening, I went with friends to see the National Christmas Trees on the White House lawn. There is one huge tree for the US (in photo) and smaller ones for each state with decorations from students from each state. Around it are the toy train tracks, with the Washington Monument photobombing.
