Join us for this year’s Norwegian Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Union Station, Wednesday,November 29 at 6pm!
In continuation of a 21-year tradition, Norway will present a Christmas tree to the people of Washington D.C., a gift symbolizing both gratitude for the assistance Norway received during WW II and appreciation for the strong friendship between our two countries.
This year’s theme highlights Norway’s positive impact on the United States economy; can you guess how many jobs Norway creates and supports in the US?
Come find out on November 29, as our event program features H.E. Norway’s Ambassador to the United States Kåre R. Aas and other special guests.
Tree lighting and remarks followed by a Norwegian Christmas Concert, oh, and rumor has it Santa Clause will make an appearance!
