NOW: Wisconsin Capitol Holiday Tree set aglow 🎄

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Christmas tree in the rotunda of the Wisconsin State Capitol was set aglow Friday, Dec. 3. 

The tree lighting ceremony was the first in two years. A tree was not displayed last holiday season because the building was closed due to COVID-19. 

This year's theme is "Hometown for the Holidays." 

"All these ideas of home are important and this year we are celebrating the strength and the beauty of the communities right here in Wisconsin," said Gov. Tony Evers. 

The holiday tree is decorated with handmade ornaments from people who showcased what their hometown means to them.
