As usual the tree is huge. This photo is taken from the second floor. And to be more energy efficient all the lights on the tree this year are LED. I noticed as soon as I walked in that the lights looked different... brighter. All the decorations on the tree are made by Wisconsin school children.
This is our second Christmas in Madison and I am working on new traditions. We lived 2 blocks from the Capitol for 11 months and I find I miss cutting through the rotunda on my way to the library or the grocery store. A visit to the Capitol will definitely be a yearly event.
