You Can Virtually Tour The White House This Christmas Season


If you’ve ever wanted to visit the White House at Christmas time, you’re in luck! We are about to give you cheeky tour of their famous Christmas decorations!

Every year, it is compulsory for the First Lady to unveil the official White House holiday decorations, and yesterday Dr. Jill Biden did the honours by revealing the 2021 theme and decor that she spearheaded. Named “Gifts from the Heart,” the sentiment of this year’s holiday decorations is to focus on “things that unite and heal, and bring us together.” Through decor, the First Lady wanted to honour those who persevered through a difficult year brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we celebrate our first holiday season in the White House, we are inspired by the Americans we have met across the country, time and again reminding us that our differences are precious and our similarities infinite,” the President and First Lady said in a joint release. “The things we hold sacred unite us and transcend distance, time, and even the constraints of a pandemic: faith, family, and friendship; a love of the arts, learning, and nature; gratitude, service, and community; unity and peace. These are the gifts that tie together the heart strings of our lives. These are the Gifts from the Heart.”

Every holiday season—under the watchful guidance of the First Lady—countless volunteers decorate the White House for Christmas. Jacqueline Kennedy started the festive tradition 60 years ago, when she founded the nonprofit organisation, which works to preserve the history of the storied presidential home. (Her first Christmas decoration theme of choice was The Nutcracker.)

This year, expect to see the Bidens’ Christmas decor on full display in the virtual tour, as well as decorations from past administrations. There’s even a closer look at the many gingerbread houses on display in the People’s House!
