Many liken Brevard in the winter to a Hallmark Christmas movie. There's just something about a small mountain town decorated in holiday lights.

From the forests of our beloved NC mountains, Ruby, this year’s hand-picked US Capitol Christmas Tree travels through the east coast to adorn her new home in Washington, DC.⁣

Ruby is a mighty 78ft Red Spruce from Pisgah National Forest harvested just outside Transylvania County. ⁣

Happy travels to Ruby and may her shimmering light shine brightly for our nation.
