Welcome to the White House for Christmas season. "Deck the Halls and Welcome All," is this year's (2010) theme based on the colors in the Red Room and the Christmas colors of red and green. The White House is a perfect place to decorate for the holidays. An estimated 100,000 people will visit the White House during the holiday season. The President's estate will host many dinner parties, receptions, and open houses throughout the month of December. Take a sneek peak.
