White house Christmas decorations - Trump - 2019

Christmas at the White House: The Spirit of America

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.
