Thursday, December 08, 2016


On Tuesday, December 6, the 2016 U.S. Capitol Christmas tree from the Payette National Forest in Idaho was lit on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Rain couldn't keep spectators from gathering to officially usher in the 2016 Christmas season. Idaho fifth-grader Isabella Gerard joined Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, along with Idaho Senators Mike Crapo and James Risch, Congressman Raúl Labrador, and Stephen Ayers, Architect of the Capitol.
