Phillip and I were able to get tickets through a friend of his to go to the National Christmas Tree Lighting in DC. The event takes place on the Ellipse of the White House and is quiet an event. It's something that many people who live in the DC metro area for any period of time probably have on their "DC To Do List." It was cold and windy but worth the hour and a half we were outside for the ceremony. Now we are homing enjoying a cocktail and the warmth of our tiny apartment.
We saw Cathy Rigby of "Peter Pan" fame, Eartha Kitt, and of course, The President of The United States, among others.
And perhaps, our favorite tree sighting, the North Carolina Tree.
