December 2016- Curious Monday
Ready for the holidays, This December Curious Monday’s Winner is Mr. Hernando Ardila. Congrats Hernando! After answering the Christmas themed question he was randomly awarded as the lucky winner this month.
Challenge was to respond the following question:
1) Which president started the White House lighting ceremony?
Correct answer is Calvin Coolidge
There are two competing claims about which president was the first to place a Christmas tree in the White House. Some scholars say President Franklin Pierce did in 1856; others say President Benjamin Harrison brought in the first tree in 1889. President Coolidge started the White House lighting ceremony in 1923.
