BISMARCK, N.D. - The Capitol Christmas tree is now up.

Capitol staff received 148 new ornaments this year to add to the state's collection.

"The military ones we never throw away, you know we save as many as we can until they start getting bad or if their food items or something we can't really store. So I really don't know I'd be totally guessing", said Ronda Berg, Capitol Complex Event Coordinator.

While she cannot say exactly how many ornaments there are, Berg says there are well over a thousand on the tree every year.
