Christmas at the White House

Tree in the White House visitor's entrance

I’ve always heard how nice it is to go to the White House and go on a tour … especially at Christmas. Yet, I hadn’t been there since a school trip back in 1982. With the advent of the additional security measures over the years, I’ve also not given any serious thought to attempting to go on a tour for quite some time.

So, when Councilmember Graham’s office contacted me last week to see if I would be interested in going to see the holiday decorations, I jumped at the chance. I also owe Graham and his staff a huge thank you for thinking of me among the many Ward 1 residents they reached out to. I think it’s nice that councilmembers are able to organize tours such as this one for their constituents.

Since I know there are many people who probably won’t see the decorations for themselves this year, I’m sharing the photos I took here so that we can all enjoy the decorations together.

First dog, Bo, was also recreated in the visitor's entrance decorations
