Caption/Information: Luci Baines Johnson, State Representative Doug Miller and hundreds of others were on hand to celebrate the 42nd annual lighting of the Christmas tree at LBJ State Park and Historic Site on Sunday evening. The tradition was started by President Lyndon B. Johnson and his wife, Ladybird Johnson, back in 1970, and has continued as a popular holiday event with decorations, lights, Christmas songs, a live nativity scene and tours of the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm, which was also decorated for Christmas as it would have looked in the early 1900s.
