Post subject:  ABOUT THE NATIONAL CHRISTMAS TREE

Fab article by Christmas Light Enthusiast and Aficionado (!) Jeff Carter---

Frederick Feiker could be considered the father of the National Christmas Tree. As an assistant to Commerce Secretary, Herbert Hoover, he was instrumental in convincing President Coolidge in 1923 to light a tree for Christmas. It was to encourage others to do the same and help the then growing national electric grid.
