No ceremony this year at the State Capitol

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There will not be a tree lighting ceremony this year at the State Capitol, but there will still be a Christmas tree.

The governor's people tell us there's just too much going on at Capitol Square with the "Lincoln" movie therefore, there will be no pomp and circumstance this year.

The tree will go up December 19 .

There wasn't a tree at all in 2005 and 2006 when the Capitol was undergoing renovations.
