MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma -

It might not feel like, but the holidays are just right around the corner. The U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree is on its way to Washington.

The 118 year old, 63-foot tall Sierra White Fir was cut down in California on Saturday.

Now, it's on a 4,500 mile journey across the country.

It'll make two dozen stops along the way, including a stop at Oklahoma's Tinker Air Force base in Midwest City on November 19, 2011.
