The United States of America is the world's third largest country in size and nearly the third largest in terms of population (318,892,103).

In the early 17th century, settlers moved from Europe to the New World, established colonies, and displaced the native people.

The settlers fought for their independence from Britain in the late 18th century and formed a union of states based on a new constitution, declaring independence from Britain on July 4, 1776.

Do you want to watch the fifty States?

 

They have their own flag, of course.
 

But they have the same President. The current President is the 45th. Did you hear about them?

We are going to travel to the capital city of The United States of America: Washington, D.C. and we are going to visit some well known places such as The Capitol, Lincoln, Jefferson or Washington Memorials...
Are you ready?

And The White House, of course!

But we can't travel to The USA without visiting its most famous city, The Big Apple: New York.
Let's take our luggage and fly over there... It's waiting for us!

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree marks the beginning of Christmastime in New York City.
 
Image source: nydailynews.com
It has been a Christmas tradition for eighty-five years. 
When did it start?  In 1931 (during the Big Depression-era) when some workers on the construction of Rockefeller Center decided decorate one small tree with string, tin cans and garlands of paper on Christmas Eve.

But, what is the Rockefeller Center? (Rockefeller comes from an important family surname).
It is a large area with nineteen buildings surrounding an ice rink, in the middle of Manhattan, between 48th and 51st Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenue.
When Christmas comes, each year in early December, the most important celebration is the tree-lighting ceremony. 

2017 edition is on 29 November, because it is always the first Wednesday after Thanksgiving. 

Thousands and thousands of New Yorkers (and tourists) go there because they want to see the amazing show; this year version will turn on over 45,000 LED lights and it will be an enormous Swarovski star on top, like always.
Every year the head of gardening flies over Connecticut, Nueva Jersey, Ohio, Vermont... forests and sometimes goes to Canada if necessary, to find the best tree (a spruce). 
On this occasion, the tree came from Pennsylvania and it is twenty-three metres high and it weighs about twelve or thirteen tons. 


After 7 January it will be given to Habitat for Humanity in order to build wooden houses.

The President of the USA officially takes office on January 20 of the year after he is elected, so next Friday we'll attend the Presidential Inauguration.
That day at noon on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building, the President-elect takes the Oath of Office repeating the Constitution words:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States".
Then, it is the President's turn to speak. This is the Inaugural Address.
Every elected President since George Washington has given an inaugural address.
In his second inaugural address, Washington gave the shortest, just 135 words. And the longest address was delivered by William Henry Harrison (8445 words), who spoke without a hat or coat in freezing weather and caught a cold that killed him one month later.
The Vice-president-elect also takes his or her oath of office, in the same ceremony, before the President does.
After the inauguration, both President and Vice-president travel in a parade down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C., from the Capitol Building to the White House.
