Durham Tree

Omaha’s official Christmas tree, a 40-foot blue spruce, waits for its water trough at the Durham Museum. The tree will be lit on Thanksgiving.

The Durham Museum in downtown Omaha will kick off the holiday season on Thanksgiving with a virtual tree-lighting ceremony.

Officials will flip the switch on the Christmas tree at 7 p.m. Thursday.

This year’s tree is a 40-foot-tall blue spruce donated by Rosemary Synowiecki. It was brought to the museum on Nov. 15.

The 30-minute tree-lighting ceremony will include musical performances by the Boys Town Choir and a greeting from Santa.

The program can be viewed at durhammuseum.org/tree-lighting or on the museum’s YouTube and Facebook accounts.
