Poetry at National Tree Lighting

The 2015 lighting of the National Christmas Tree, Thursday, December 3, 2015 on the Ellipse in Washington, DC.

The National Tree Lighting, going back to Calvin Coolidge, to an audience of 20,000+ tonight, included a poem Jimmy Dunne wrote — read by a female soldier stationed in Afganistan. She read it to her husband and two kids she won’t see this Christmas.
