The Capitol Christmas tree is in D.C.

The 84 foot tall, 84-year-old Englemann Spruce came in on a big, red truck labeled "From Tree to Shining Tree" on Monday.

A public Christmas tree lighting ceremony is set for Tuesday, Dec. 6 with House Speaker Paul Ryan.

This is not to be confused with the National Christmas Tree Lighting, which is at the White House Thursday.
