Happy holidays and a happy new year to everyone!

This year for my annual holiday blog post, I took two photos. The first features the 2014 Capitol Christmas Tree in front of the Capitol. The dome of the Capitol is covered in scaffolding. It is currently undergoing a two-year restoration. The tree is a white spruce from the Chippewa National Forest in Cass Lake, Minnesota. It was harvested on October 29. The tree is decorated with thousands of ornaments, handcrafted by children and others from Minnesota. The second photo features the tree with the National Mall and the Washington Monument in the background.

The dome of the Capitol is currently undergoing a two-year restoration project, hence all the scaffolding.
