    5 to Watch: U.S.Struggles Again in Figure Skating, Shani Davis Competes in Signature Event

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas on Capitol Hill.

    House Speaker John Boehner will light the Capitol Christmas Tree on the Capitol's West Front Lawn at 5 p.m. ET Tuesday.

    This year's tree, a massive White Spruce, came from Minnesota's Chippewa National Forest and will be decorated with thousands of ornaments made by residents of Minnesota children.

    After Tuesday's lighting, the Capitol Christmas Tree will be lit from dusk until 11 p.m. every day through Jan. 1.
