National Christmas Tree’s rich History

 

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

US National Park ServiceWashington, D.C. – The first community Christmas celebration in Washington, D.C. was on December 24th, 1913. The Christmas tree and related pageantry occurred on the East Plaza of the US Capitol on Christmas Eve. 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.
