National Christmas Tree 2014

Sooooooooooo, it's just over a month after Christmas, so what better time to finally write about the National Christmas tree, haha.  I did want to share some photos from the 2014 tree because every year the design is different and super fun to see! 

There are probably a bazillion other photos just like this, but the tree lines up so nicely with the Washington Monument, haha. 

This year they had a fun new feature for the smaller state trees, working with Google's Made With Code initiative.  People (particularly young girls) from all over could try their hand at "coding" a state tree, and their design would show up later at a specific time!  They even had stations around the trees encouraging guests to try their hand at "coding" on the spot, which I thought was a neat idea for kids especially.  I look forward to seeing what fun new ideas they come up with for this year's trees!
