On December 1 at 5 p.m. the National Christmas Tree will be lighted for the holiday season, an event that draws thousands to Washington, D.C., one that requires a lottery system to dole out 17,000 free tickets.
Didn't win the lottery to see the lighting of the National Christmas Tree in person? Well, you can still watch the big event either live via your trusty computer or a day later by turning on your television.
As part of the continuing "Holiday in the National Parks" celebration, the White House has released a video called BarneyCam in which we get to see President Bush's dogs get Junior Ranger status. It is corny, probably intended just for kids, but I got a laugh out of it. Maybe you will too.
