As is our tradition, the Library of Congress has once again decorated the Great Hall with a tall tree for the holidays, full of lights and ornaments for the enjoyment of visitors. I’m not sure exactly how tall, but it takes staff using a small cherry picker to put together and decorate the tree. Set amidst the magnificence of the Great Hall, the tree veritably glows with a festive, holiday spirit.

If you’ve had the chance to visit the Library and enjoy the tree, make sure to follow us on Instagram at @librarycongress and post your own photos tagging the Library as well. There, you can also check out a great time-lapse video of the tree being put up!

We at the Library of Congress wish you and yours a merry Christmas and wonderful holiday season!
