White House Christmas tree arrives today from Wisconsin

WASHINGTON (ABC) -

Melania Trump is set to accept the official White House Christmas tree on Monday. First ladies typically receive the tree on the Friday after Thanksgiving, but the Trumps are expected to spend the holiday at their home in Palm Beach, Florida.

Jim, Diane and David Chapman, owners of Silent Night Evergreens in Endeavor, won a contest run by the National Christmas Tree Association and will get to present the tree to the first lady at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20, 2017.

Endeavor is about 15 miles north of Portage.

The 19 1/2-foot Balsam fir will go on display in the White House Blue Room.

The Christmas Tree Association says the Chapmans also presented trees to the White House in 1998 and 2003.
