ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. first lady Michelle Obama welcomed the official 2015 White House Christmas Tree to the presidential mansion in Washington on Friday (November 27). This year's official White House Christmas Tree was a nearly 19-foot high Pennsylvania fir brought to the White House portico on a horse-drawn carriage. The official White House Christmas tree has been provided by the National Christmas Tree Association for display in the mansion's Blue Room since 1966, according to the White House. The tree arrived the day after Thanksgiving as the First Family along with other Americans prepare for the festive holiday season.
