Photo Gallery: First Lady Tribute Ornaments
Click here to see the photo gallery.   In 1961, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy started the White House tradition of selecting an official holiday theme. For her daughter Caroline, Mrs. Kennedy created a Nutcracker-themed Christmas at the White House—and the tradition has lived on ever since. This year, the White House celebrates and pays tribute to past White House holidays with four unique trees in the Grand Foyer. Each tree is decorated with a collection of ornaments that best represent the holiday legacies of former First Ladies dating back more than 50 years to Mrs. Kennedy, and in the gallery above you can see some of the ornaments chosen to highlight past holidays. First Lady Michelle Obama continues the tradition with this year’s theme “Joy to All.” It celebrates the many joys of the holiday season: the joy of giving and service to others; the joy of sharing our blessing with one another; and of course, the joy of welcoming our friends and families as guests into our home over the next several weeks. read more
