Did anyone watch the lighting?

Early Thursday evening the Obamas and the Bidens gathered to light the National Christmas Tree. "Ho! It worked," exclaimed President Obama after pressing the button to switch on the lights.

Michelle Obama read aloud from "T'was the Night Before Christmas."

Photos of the lighting below. We'll be adding pictures as the event continues, plus, check out National Christmas Tree lighting ceremonies from past administrations.

    Ok, so why tell everyone that and answer in such a negative way? And why include "just because its Obama"? As if thats the only reason I am interested...Just so ya know, i have the Presidential ornaments form quite a few years, its a cute little interesting part of history. My daughter loves to get them

  • Or a televised Impeachment,that would be much better than a mass booing. Let me send my letter to Santa requesting an Obozo Impeachment for Chirstmas! Does Obozo get to use the Teleprompter during Congressional Impeachment hearings?
