Every December, the White House is filled with holiday decorations: Christmas trees, wreaths, garland, colorful lights, gingerbread houses, and more. A team of volunteers from across the country
work diligently in late November to get the White House ready for the very popular public White House holiday tours.
This year, volunteers will be busy decorating the White House from November 20-27. Applications for volunteers closed on September 30th.
You can view the White House Christmas decorations in December
by signing up in advance for a White House tour. These tours are popular, so the sooner you submit your request, the better chance you will have to
tour the White House this holiday season.
The White House will welcome the 2017 holiday season with the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on November 30th.
Tickets were distributed by lottery in mid October. Lucky winners will be notified on October 30.
