Many of the condo associations in Penn Quarter don't allow residents to have live Christmas trees in their units. It's a bummer for sure, but we do have one of the world's most famous Christmas trees right in our backyard. (OK, it's in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave's backyard, but still...)
This year's White House Christmas tree comes all the way from Neshkoro, Wisconsin, and will be lit on December 1st. Want to be at the ceremony and concert? You have from now until 9:59am on Monday, November 7th to register for the ticket lottery. There are 3,000 ticketed seats and 14,000 standing room tickets up for grabs. Performers at the event haven't been announced yet, but last year boasted Sheryl Crow, Maroon 5, and BB King.
