Florida Governor Charlie Crist lit up the night and welcomed in the holidays Tuesday night.
Crist hit the switch and instantly brightened the dark night with the glowing colors of the holiday season.
The governor greeted dozens of staff members and their families who filed into the gates of the mansion for the tree lighting ceremony and holiday party given in their honor.
The Christmas tree is decorated with low-energy outdoor
L-E-D lights to reduce energy costs, which is one of the Governor’s priorities.
Governor Crist will host a menorah lighting ceremony later this month.
