The National Christmas Tree Has Been Lit

"This is the 94th time Americans have gathered to light our national tree. It’s the eighth and final time for our family. Before we leave tonight, I’d just like to express what an incredible honor it has been for us to serve this nation. And to feel its warmth and to feel its generosity and how our family has been awed by America’s goodness. And most of all, it has been so special to share these eight years with all of you. So on behalf of Michelle, Malia, Sasha, Grandma, Bo and Sunny—Merry Christmas, everybody. Happy holidays."

  2. Dish guys finally came and surveyed around, and put major kibosh on the project. Citing all the problems I'd been citing since day one: under the mountain, line of sight, distance from house. . . . No satellite for this gurl. But what a lovely lovely thought!
