Photos: Hauling the Capitol Christmas Tree

On Dec. 2, U.S. Speaker of the House John Ryan will be ready to light up this 74-foot tall Lutz Spruce on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building with thousands of LED lights and 4,000 ornaments. The official welcoming of the U.S. Capitol Christmas tree and the kickoff to the holidays is a tradition that began in 1964 by House Speaker John W. McCormack.
