Well, we finished venturing inside the Beltway to check out the major Christmas trees. Having already seen the Capitol Christmas Tree, today's objective was the White House Christmas Tree and the tiny Christmas trees representing the 50 states and some territories.
The Capitol Christmas Tree is the clear winner for best tree. The White House Christmas Tree was relatively dull, but vastly improved by having the White House behind it. The state trees were short, with various ornaments encased in clear plastic balls. Washington State took this in one of the laziest directions - putting balls in the balls.
The Capitol Christmas Tree, however, was more effectively lit and decorated. Its greatest problem was a lack of non-muddy paths to approach the tree itself. With the view of the Capitol dome behind it, the Capitol Christmas Tree definitely wins this year.
