NAGS HEAD, N.C., November 15, 2022 — The U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree made stops in the Outer Banks and Hampton Roads Monday as drivers tugged it towards its eventual display site in Washington, D.C. This will be Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s last Christmas to light the tree as the Speaker of the House. The Republican’s are set to take control of the Congress the mid-term elections. The voters have elected the Republicans to take care of our economy and to end inflation to avoid a recession.
The tree, Ruby the red spruce, is 78 feet tall. It’s from Pisgah National Forest in the western part of North Carolina.
“Every year, a different national forest is selected to provide a tree to appear on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol building for the holiday season,” the website reads.
It has special ornaments, too. Many school systems, community groups, art studios and conservation programs — all from North Carolina — contributed decorations for the tree.
Even the truck designed to pull Ruby was specially decorated for the trek.
