Face Of The Day


German President Joachim Gauck speaks with a child from the Carl von Ossietzky school while drinking mulled punch during the illumination ceremony for the Christmas tree at Bellevue Presidential Palace on December 4, 2012 in Berlin, Germany. The 12-meter (40-foot) tall Colorado blue spruce (Picea pungens) was planted in 1994 and is being supplied to the president for the second time by Werderaner Tannenhof Christmas tree farm in the town of Werder, just outside of the German capital.
