National Christmas Tree
The National Christmas Tree and smaller trees representing the US states and other country's territories are lit on the Ellipse near the White House in a ceremony that annually kicks off the US Christmas season.
According to decades-long tradition, the illumination of the Christmas lights is done by the country's president.
The event marks the start of month-long festivities known as the Pageant of Peace.
