I’m a sucker for Christmas lights!

Nice, where is this? Looks a lot nicer than the National Christmas tree usually does.

The national Christmas tree isn’t even in the top 5 best Christmas trees in DC. Some years it can be downright ugly.

What is that top 5?

The Capitol tree is always better than the National tree. The Canadian embassy usually has a nice tree outside. Oh, the Norwegian (I think?) tree in Union Station is great too.

Edit: I also recommend the Willard, which has amazing decorations plus live choral performances.

Yeah most years it’s ugly. They cover it with a black shroud usually for some reason

I feel like they're always in the process of dying, even though they're fully-planted, live trees. The previous one only lasted three years before getting some sort of fungal disease.

If you go there, make some time to walk three blocks south to F Street, then a block east. In front of the Portrait Gallery is an amazing Holiday Market with about 70 local businesses selling art, clothes, toys, and other great gifts (for your friends and loved ones or for yourself).
