Honoring our Troops
This year’s White House decorations also pay tribute to our Armed Forces and their families.
The East Wing of the White House features a Christmas tree adorned with gold star ornaments, honoring the heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
The East Landing is also on this landing where we honor the brave individuals currently serving; visitors are invited to pause and send a message of thanks to our troops serving overseas and stateside.
The East Wing is the normal visitor's entrance and is also where the First Lady and her staff have their offices. An older part of the executive mansion
In the Blue Room, an grand oval room overlooking the South Lawn and Washington Monument, is the official White House Christmas tree. This year's tree is a Fraser fir from Bustard's Christmas Tree Farm in Lehighton, Pennsylvania — standing 18 feet 1 inch tall from trunk to tip. Dedicated to our nation's service members, veterans, and their families, it is ornamented with holiday messages of hope for our troops and patriotic symbols of red, white, and blue.
