Members of the Capitol Grounds Tree Division prepare the 47th Capitol Christmas tree for decoration on December 2, 2011. The 63 foot Sierra white fir from California's Stanislaus National Forest arrived in Washington D.C. a few days earlier, following a 20-day tour across the country. The tree will be decorated with more than 10,000 LED lights and some 2,000 handmade ornaments from California. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
