National Christmas Tree Shines Bright at 100

GE Lighting, a Savant Company, Partners with the National Park Foundation for the 100th Christmas Tree Lighting

For 60 years, the GE Lighting business has been proud to design and provide lighting for the National Christmas Tree – for the first 57 years as part of General Electric, and the past three years as part of Savant Systems, Inc. Now known as GE Lighting, a Savant company, the business is again honored to partner with the National Park Foundation to help this year’s tree shine bright.

This year’s design, created specifically for the 100th lighting of the National Christmas Tree, includes strings of white lights along with strands of gold string lights, white sparkling twinkle spheres and white Bethlehem stars interspersed throughout. For daytime interest, the tree is accented with gold holographic diamond shapes for daytime glitter. Historical star tree toppers coupled with star ornaments from tree designs of years past embellish the base of the tree. A simple, yet elegant star topper finishes off the design.
