If you missed the premiere of our half-hour holiday special, “Larry’s Tree: A Christmas Journey To The White House” on our broadcast partner the RFD-TV Network on Christmas Day, you can now see it here online or watch free on Amazon Prime Video.
“Larry’s Tree” is the story of one farmer with a dream so big it took 40 years to come true.
Larry Smith never thought about doing anything but growing Christmas trees for a living. And from the start in tiny Newland, NC (pop. 698) he dreamed of some day having one of his trees as the center of attention in the Blue Room as the annual official White House Christmas tree.
He did it. We were there to capture every step of the process, from selection to decoration and unveiling at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. (You can also see a great behind-the-scenes photo slideshow, set to SPW Editor & Publisher Chip Carter’s rendition of ‘O Holy Night’ that closes the show here.)
You will get to know one man, one town, one spirit that unites us all as a nation.
It’s the story of an American dream come true. We couldn’t be prouder to tell it.
