The White House Christmas Tree has completed its journey from Wisconsin all the way to the First Family.

The first touch of Christmas arrived at the White House this week in the form of a attractive 19-foot Balsam fir.

A tree harvested in Shawano County will dazzle White House visitors this Christmas season.

Multiple military personnel have been removed from their positions in the White House after allegedly having improper contact with foreign women during President Trump's recent trip to Asia, according to a new report. The Champans, who hail from Endeavor, Wis., were this year's winners of the National Christmas Tree Association national tree contest.

The Chapmans previously presented trees to President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton, and President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush.

"I grew up on a Christmas Tree farm, and my parents also won the honor of putting a tree in the White House", commented Diane Chapman.

During last year's presidential campaign, Trump railed against the preference for saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas", characterizing it as a "chipping away at Christianity". You know, they don't say it anymore. "We're going to start saying it again".

US President Donald Trump waves after he pardoned the turkey, Drumstick, as First Lady Melania Trump (R) and their son Barron look on during the turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House in Washington, DC on November 21, 2017. The Wisconsin-grown tree arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue via horse-drawn carriage and will be displayed in the White House's Blue Room. This is Harleth's first Blue Room tree selection, made on a trip to Wisconsin on earlier this fall.

The White House food kitchen and pastry kitchen will go into overdrive preparing all of the food and cakes, cookies and pies that are typically served at the parties, along with the gingerbread White House - which is on display for weeks and never served.
