Michelle Obama & Kermit The Frog Light The National Christmas Tree

Michelle Obama Kermit

The unlikely duo rang in the holiday season by reading The Night Before Christmas together!

O, Christmas tree! Michelle Obama and Kermit the Frog were both on hand to light the 2011 National Christmas Tree Dec. 1 on the Ellipse at President’s Park in Washington, D.C. The merry pair were joined by Santa (of course), host Carson Daly and performances by OneRepublic, Rodney Atkins and Marsha Ambrosius.

Now that his most recent movie, The Muppets, is a big hit, Kermit’s a top celeb! Who better to join the first lady to read the Christmas classic? “You can call me Michelle,” she told him.

“That’s really nice of you,” Kermit replied. “I have to call Miss Piggy ‘Your Majesty.”

Kermit said the story is one of his favorites of all time. “I particularly like the part about no creature was stirring,” he explained. “That never happens when you spend Christmas with The Muppets.”

So cute! What’s YOUR favorite Christmas story?
