President-elect Barack Obama shopped for a Christmas tree with his daughters Sasha,7, Malia,10, and a friend of the girl’s in Chicago on Sunday, Dec. 14, 2008.

Via HuffingtonPost:
The trio and a friend of the girls hunted for the perfect tree as people gathered across the street to watch. After making their pick, all four headed back to an awaiting sport-utility vehicle.

Obama turned to the crowd and said, “Merry Christmas, everybody!” Then he waved and disappeared inside the vehicle.The tree will be delivered later to the Obama house.
