Every December, the White House is filled with holiday decorations: Christmas trees, wreaths, garland, colorful lights, gingerbread houses, and more. 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's theme is "The Spirit of America". Decorations include four star-spangled trees with gilded eagles on top in the East Room; a gingerbread house in the State Dining room featuring the South Portico of the White House and American landmarks including the Liberty Bell, Mount Rushmore, and the Statue of Liberty. The Grand Foyer is filled with 22 evergreens and 14 magnolia topiaries.
Ticketing information can be found below.
The White House welcomes more than 25,000 public tour guests every year to view the beautiful holiday decorations. Visitors receive an official White House Holiday Tour booklet. Here is the official White House Christmas Tour booklet from 2019:
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.
