COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) – South Carolina’s official Christmas tree arrived at the state house in Columbia Monday morning.

The Columbia Garden Club got the state’s Christmas tree from Pinetum Christmas Tree Farm, whose owners consider South Carolina their second home.

The tree will stay dark until the 51st Annual Governor’s Carolighting on Monday, November 27th.

The event brings South Carolinians together for caroling and the tree lighting, which will take place on the north lawn of the state house.
