State Christmas tree lights up

The Kentucky capitol looks a lot more festive with the lighting of the state's Christmas tree.

The governor and first lady lit the tree Monday night at 6:30 at the capitol.

The tree brought some controversy this year, after word first spread that it was being called a "holiday" tree, but the governor declared it was, in fact, a "Christmas tree."

The governor says it was donated by an Anderson County couple in honor of their son who passed away.

The state Christmas tree this year is a thirty-foot tall Norway Spruce.
