WATCH: Capitol Christmas tree delivered

WASHINGTON – The 2018 Capitol Christmas tree was delivered Monday morning at the West Lawn of the Capitol Building.

The 82-foot noble fir was cut down earlier this month in Oregon, and will be lit in early December. The White House Christmas tree, a 19½-foot tall Fraser fir, arrived last week.

A livestream of the tree arriving has now ended, and can be watched in full below.
