Nation­al Christ­mas Tree knocked over by strong winds

Strong winds knocked over the Nation­al Christ­mas Tree near the Ellipse at the White House on Tues­day after­noon.
The ever­green tree, locat­ed in the north­east quad­rant of the Ellipse near the White House, has been erect­ed and dec­o­rat­ed as a Christ­mas tree every year since 1923. The winds knocked this year’s tree over just two days before the planned light­ing cer­e­mo­ny on Thurs­day, which is due to be attend­ed by Pres­i­dent Joe Biden.
