RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Capitol Christmas Tree is lit, and the holiday season is officially underway.

Governor Northam and First Lady Pamela Northam flipped the switch for the Capitol Christmas Tree Wednesday evening.

This year’s tree is a 25-foot Norway Spruce donated by Clouse Farm in Winchester.

This marks the Northam’s final time lighting up the Capitol Tree. Next year, Glenn Youngkin and his wife will have the honors.
