I love watching the White House Christmas decorating team setting up the massive trees, centerpieces, and wreaths all through the national home.
This year’s theme is ‘Gather Around’. It celebrates the stories and traditions that bring us together this special time of year. As members of one American family, we are united in a story built over the course of two centuries.
The holidays serve as an opportunity to recall our Nation's journey, reflect on our blessings, and to remember those who serve and sacrifice for our freedoms. It's a season when each of us can do our part to care for one another.
