The National Christmas Tree’s deep History

 

US Capitol Christmas Tree and Other Forerunners to the National (Community) Christmas Tree

US National Park ServiceWashington, D.C. – December 24th, 1913 was the first community Christmas celebration in Washington, D.C. On the East Plaza of the US Capitol on Christmas Eve, the Christmas tree and related pageantry occurred. It was meant as a celebration for all of Washington, rich and poor, young and old, although a special emphasis was placed on the children.1

The forty-five minute program, replete with angel figures in white robes, nativity tableaux, carols, and Boy Scouts waving American flags, was modeled largely on community celebrations in other cities.

Written by Dinah Maria Mulock

For Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day.
