Did you know that the White House Christmas tree has already been cut down and is on its way over to the Capitol? Every year, gas stations across the country help move the tree from one side of the country to the other. First, it is cut down in Oregon. Then, it is loaded onto a large truck and taken through various states in a month long journey. It serves as a centerpiece for many holiday celebrations before being lit at the White House. Last year, Rotten Robbie participated in fueling the truck carrying the tree. We hope the drivers, staff, and tree have a safe journey this year!
