A tourist magnet for millions of visitors a year, Washington DC really pulls out all the stops during the holiday season.
As usual, a traditional DC Christmas kicks off with the annual lighting ceremony of the National Christmas Tree in early December.
The official national Christmas tree lighting at the White House will take place this year on Thursday, November 30, 2017. Thereafter, the Capitol Christmas tree will be lit from dusk until 11 p.m. every evening through January 1.
