The Holiday season in Washington, DC was marked this week by the lighting ceremony for the National Menorah on Tuesday, December 16th. The ceremony for the National Christmas Tree was held earlier this month and I took the opportunity of the good weather last night to check out the scene.

Both are on the Ellipse, just south of the White House. There isn’t a lot of parking in the immediate vicinity, but it’s a short walk from the Farragut West Metro Station.
