It's getting to be that time of year again - and you know Christmas is just around the corner when they start lighting the National Tree. Since the season keeps moving up, I suppose it's only natural the tree gets lit today, as opposed to December 24th as it was during the Roosevelt years.

And in 1935, FDR did the honors.

FDR: “For the spirit of Christmas knows no race, no creed, no clime, no limitation of time or space. Yes, the spirit of Christmas breathes an eternal message of peace and goodwill to all men.”

I think it's safe to say the season has officially begun.
