Alaska's Christmas tree in D.C. decorated by students from Tanana Middle School

The Christmas tree in the nation's capital received a few gifts from students at Fairbanks' own Tanana Middle School. Lights and elegant ribbons surround the National Christmas Tree, dazzling those who walk past the White House Lawn. Smaller trees represent individual states. And Alaska's Tree, was decorated by a classroom of middle school art students.
