After the lighting of the White House Christmas Tree, First Lady Michelle Obama and Kermit the Frog read the classic poem and story "Twas the Night Before Christmas."

The First Lady wore a wonderful orange scarf and tweed overcoat for the occasion.

First Lady Michelle Obama and Kermit the Frog Reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas:

As part of a tradition that stretches back 89 years, last night the First Family lit the National Christmas Tree.

First Lady Michelle Obama looks wonderful, choosing to celebrate the occasion in a tweed overcoat and standout orange scarf.

There's a new tree this year that still has some growing to do to reach his prime. The previous tree fell over in February in the face of strong winds.

Michelle, Sasha, Malia, and Bo the First Dog get the White House Christmas Tree. Don't they make quite the cute group?

First Lady Michelle Obama is joined by Malia Obama and Sasha Obama for the presentation of the Official White House Christmas Tree at the North Portico of the White House, Nov. 25, 2011. The 19-foot-tall balsam fir came from Schroeder’s Forevergreens near Neshkoro, Wisconsin and will be displayed throughout the holiday season in the Blue Room of the White House.

The tree from Schroeder's Forevergreens in Wisconsin is being decorated to honor of military families.

Schroeder's is one of approximately 800 Christmas tree lots and farms in the US that participates in the Trees for Troops program, which gives free Christmas trees to military families. This year they hopes to deliver their 100,000th tree.

First Lady Michelle Obama, Sasha, Malia, and Bo Receive the White House Christmas Tree:

Every year the President lights the National Christmas Tree, and Michelle, Sasha, and Malia were on hand to lend a hand. The First Lady also read "The Night Before Christmas" to a group of children.

As usual, the First Family looks amazing, but I think the highlight goes to Malia in her red overcoat.

UPDATE: Here's a video of the event
