A few decades ago, a friend from Washington, D.C. gave us the Whitehouse Christmas ornament. She has been doing this every year since. A decade ago, we purchased a medium sized tree to adorn with this collection of dozens of gold decorations. Each celebrates a Christmas tradition of various presidents, as they resided in the Whitehouse. These range from simple replicas of an angle decoration to elaborate trains and trucks. Christmas trees, decorated doors, honor guards and bands playing have been themes over the years. Each ornament come with a booklet discussing the time period and events related to that year’s ornament. Also, other places have come up with similar style ornaments. Thus, our Whitehouse tree has Mount Vernon, Monticello, Montpelier, Jamestown Settlement, Williamsburg, and the Plum Beach Light House joining in the festivities of the year. Merry Christmas.
