We all want to be there to see the lights flare up slowly from top to bottom, to join in on the fun of the holiday spirit with all the people around us, whether they are total strangers or friends and family because this time of year everyone comes together to celebrate Christmas.
Yes, I am talking about the yearly lighting ceremony where the president of the United States turns on the Christmas tree lights to start the festive season.
It is truly a great experience to be apart of and normally it is packed with hundreds of people, but this year something went terribly wrong. You will see what I mean in a minute.
Normally if you don't get there early you will have to stand through the whole ceremony, but this year there was too many chairs and too little people.

The difference indeed my people is that Barack Obama was still president back then. It looks like nobody wants to join Trump's parades.
