New Hampshire State Council on the Arts

Thursday night the National Christmas Tree will be lit in Washington.

And while that’s the centerpiece on the National Mall, it’s surrounded by smaller trees representing each state.

And this year for the first time the decorations for New Hampshire’s tree were created by a group from Berlin.

NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports….

Each year the state’s Council on the Arts decides who will make the ornaments for the state’s tree.
