Bidens light up 100th National Christmas Tree

STORY: “For 100 years, Americans have gathered at the White House to celebrate the holiday season with the lighting of the National Christmas Tree," said Biden.

The iconic tree measures 28 ft (8.5 meters) tall and uses over 13,000 ft of lights strung end-to-end.

President Calvin Cooldige hosted the very first National Christmas Tree ceremony back in 1923.
