Christmas kicked off in Washington, DC on Friday morning as the 2022 Capitol Christmas Tree arrived at the United States Capitol.

The tree and its traveling crew departed North Carolina for the Capitol during the first week of November. Live tracking of the tree’s journey began on November 5 and ended with the final stop on November 18.

Ruby the Red Spruce made 16 stops along the way, and at each stop fans could sign a banner, participate in arts and crafts, and learn about America’s National Forests.
