MADISON, WI -

Governor Walker’s office announced Tuesday that this year's theme of the Capitol Christmas Tree is Wisconsin Traditions.

Governor Walker is inviting the public, especially art teachers, parents and youth to help decorate the Capitol Christmas Tree. Ornaments symbolizing Wisconsin traditions will be displayed on the tree.

“Some pastimes, activities, and events have been bringing families together for decades,” Governor Walker said in a statement. "It may be watching the Packers, or deer hunting, or getting together for an annual Harley ride. This year we want the Capitol Christmas tree to reflect all of the things that make Wisconsin great."

Wisconsin teachers will soon receive a letter with additional information on the 2013 Capitol Christmas Tree and the "Wisconsin Traditions" theme.

The themed ornaments must be submitted by Friday, November 22.
