‘Hometown for the Holidays’ themed-ornaments sought for Capitol Holiday Tree
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A Wisconsin holiday tradition is back. Children and families are now encouraged to begin creating homemade ornaments to decorate the Wisconsin Capitol Holiday Tree, Governor Tony Evers stated.
The Capitol Holiday Tree is filled with handmade ornaments each year and is located in the rotunda of the building.
Gov. Evers announced the theme of this year’s tree is “Hometown for the Holidays,” meaning each ornament should illustrate the creator’s hometown, neighborhood or community.
The governor noted that residents statewide have been resilient over the past two years and worked together to face challenges.
“When we were facing some of our toughest days, one thing remained the same—the grit and tenacity of us as people and the strength we find in community and the place we call home,” Evers said. “Home means different things to all of us, and we hope this theme will help us celebrate the strength, diversity, and beauty of communities right here in Wisconsin.”
The 32-foot balsam fir tree was donated to the state by the Menominee Nation.
