If you haven't seen it, you should definitely go.
They also have performances every night at 7 & 8.
You can go thru December 30th.
There was a little short guy taking who showed up to get a picture just as I was leaving. He took the picture and then loudly exclaimed, "Oh, wow! Hey that looks pretty good!" I just laughed.
The National Christmas tree is surrounded by many smaller trees-one for each of the States, and Territories. They have round balls containing decorations inside from various groups from each state. My favorite was TN - with the flowers painted on the ball, it looked like pressed flowers. Interestingly enough the tree is there all year round--it is not a cut tree, but is planted. Somehow I never manage to notice it, except at Christmas ... I wonder why? A tree that large and a pine tree at that? Don't ask me. It gets a lot of attention this time of year though.
My first NFL game. Bears vs Redskins (Redskins won, unfortunately). Temperature near 24 degrees. I will say this, I am not what I would consider a huge "sports fan" but this--this was worth the experience. I can see why people could really get into the sport when you see it for real. It brings a whole new level of excitement. Oh and the third picture was the insane fan that rushed the field and was immediately tackled by security-crazy.
