Christmas arrived early to the US Capitol West Lawn with the installation of the 47th Capitol Christmas tree. The 63 foot Sierra white fir from California's Stanislaus National Forest arrived in Washington D.C. on Monday morning on November 28, 2011, following a 20-day tour across the country. The tree will eventually be decorated with more than 10,000 LED lights and some 2,000 handmade ornaments. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
