White House Holiday Preview

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.

East Room. The creche was made in Naples, Italy in the late 18th
century and features 47 carved wood and terra cotta figures. The
creche was a gift to the White House from Mrs. Charles Engelhard,
Jr. of Far Hills, NJ, and has been displayed at the White House
since 1967.
