One thing that most of us have learned first-hand in the past two years is how many different tasks can be accomplished entirely online.

The ornaments were created especially for the tree by volunteers who began folding them in July to complete hundreds of creations that are displayed on the tree and around its base. Here are some of our favorites from this years’ display!
