President Joe Biden expressed optimism for the future of the country during the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony on Thursday in Washington, telling the American people that “we have so much ahead of us.”

“Over the course of the past 99 years, presidents have continued this great American tradition of lighting the national Christmas tree through war and peace, struggle and progress,” Biden said during remarks at the event on the Ellipse near the White House. “The evergreen tree reminds us that even in the coldest days of winter that life and abundance will return. It’s a bright beacon of hope, that reminds us of the promise we find in scripture of finding light in darkness.”
