We were lucky to get tickets through a good friend to viisit the White House at Christmas time. Most of these East Wing Rooms are available to the public for viewing.

Along with the tour came a wonderfully illustrated guidebook by Jim Starr, who I was grateful they gave credit to. The illustrations show The President and First Lady’s son Barron being delited by all the festive deorations and heading up the residential staircase at the end. Included in the booklet is a recipe for Peppermint Bark and craft instructions for how to make your own silhouette.
It is truly a beautiful White House Christmas display with time-honored traditions that definitely puts you in the Christmas spirit.
We purchased two ornaments to help preserve the memories of this special holiday event.
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and all the joy of this holiday season.
