The Obama family lit up 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue last night with the annual National Christmas Tree lighting spectacular which featured performances and book readings. See the photos inside...
Last night, President Obama and his family, First Lady Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia, and mother-in-law Marian Robinson hosted the 90th annual tree-lighting ceremony on the lawn of the White House. And it looks like the First Daughters were having a good ol time pressing that button.
The ceremony was hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris and featured musical performances and Christmas songs from Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Ledisi, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat and James Taylor, along with the band The Fray.
The First Lady was on mommy duty and read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" to the kids with hilarious "Modern Family" actor Rico Rodriguez, who sat next to the Obamas during the ceremony.
President Obama uplifted the crowd speaking of the 28-foot tree saying "A great big Christmas tree shines out of the darkness..It's Christmas time, not disaster time."
Pretty. Loves this fam.
