Christmas Tree Lightings at Capitol, Governor’s Mansion

On Wednesday, December 7th, the Georgia Capitol Christmas Tree will be lighted in the Capitol Rotunda at 10:00 AM.

Gov. Nathan Deal and First Lady Sandra Deal will light the Christmas tree at the Governor’s Mansion this Sunday, December 4th at 6:30 PM. The event is open to the public and will also serve as a collection site for Toys for Tots and the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.

    1. That is not a tree it is a stack of flowers. But is is attractive. Kudos to the minions who did the actual work that the Gov will take credit for.

    2. Are we talking the same Salvation Army that discriminates against gays and has requirements that all employees must be or convert to Evangelical Christianity or not be hired? The same one that uses Red Kettle money to pay lobbyists who work to pass laws Do God’s Good Works™?

    3. 12/4 event. Will there be booze?

  2. The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

    Why’d they wait until December to light their Christmas trees? Why didn’t they light their trees in October before Halloween, like they do in retail?

    If you’ve never been down to the State Capitol during the Christmas season, I would highly encourage it.

    The rotunda Christmas tree quite literally fills up the whole rotunda from top to bottom. I took a friend down to see the tree last year, and she loved it.
