Computer savvy kids who want to get into the holiday spirit can use code to deck the halls with boughs of holly…at the White House.
Yesterday, Google today launched a new Holiday Lights project inviting girls to animate the trees at the White House's President's Park location.
The programmed lights will debut at the 92nd annual National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on December 4th.
"The tradition of the tree lighting ceremony dates back to 1923 when President Calvin Coolidge lit the first fir tree outside the White House," Google's Vice President of Engineering, Pavni Diwanji, wrote in a blog post Tuesday. "This is the first year kids from across the country will be in control of the state and territory holiday tree lights!"
