Each year at Christmas, the nation's First Family traditionally kicks off the holiday season by decorating the White House, circulating their official holiday card and lighting the national Christmas tree. These ceremonial duties become even more important in difficult times, and President and Dr. Biden are giving this work the attention and sincerity it deserves.
The theme of this year's celebration is "Gifts from the Heart," which was "[i]nspired by the small acts of kindness and experiences that lifted our spirits this year and throughout the pandemic[.]" Different rooms at the White House have been decorated to highlight such gifts, including: faith, community, peace, the arts and gratitude.
The White House website offers a wonderful look at this year's decorations, including a virtual walking tour of the public areas of the mansion. It's nice to see the holiday season celebrated in style at the White House this year!
