The White House received a big package Saturday: a Douglas fir tree from Lehighton, Pa. Christmas has come to Pennsylvania Avenue.

Christopher Botek, who won the right to donate the tree through the National Christmas Tree Association's annual contest, delivered the tree. It will be set up and decorated in the White House Blue Room by staffers and volunteers.
