For the 13th time, a Christmas tree grown in North Carolina was chosen to be the National Christmas Tree.

As reported by WBCN, earlier this morning Larry Smith the owner of Mountain Top Fraser Fir hung a bow on his Nationally winning Fraser Fir tree in preparations for the big day. There are thousands of trees on his farm but little did he know, that one he planted himself decades ago, would become a dream come true.

This National Tree will depart from Salisbury, Thursday morning, November 15th,  and will arrive in Washington DC on Friday, November 16th. The big ceremony will be hosted on Monday, November 19th, 2018.

The tree will be displayed in the Blue Room of the White House for the 96th annual National Christmas Tree Lighting. Way to go NC!
