A Christmas tree was delivered to the White House

According to a long tradition, she was received by the First Lady of the United States.

A Christmas tree was delivered to the White House on Monday afternoon, which, following a long tradition, was accepted by the First Lady of the United States Melanie Trump.

This year, the Presidential Residence will be decorated with a 5.6-meter high fir tree, provided by Dan and Bryan Trees from West Virginia.

To the sound of Christmas melodies performed by military band, the tree was taken to the Northern porch of the White House on a horse-drawn carriage. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the first lady came out on the porch wearing a mask.

Since 1966, a special association has been responsible for choosing a tree for the White House.

Tree delivery marks the beginning of annual festive events in the White House. This week, another festive custom is to be performed: the symbolic pardon of the turkey by the president.
