2004 White House Christmas Ornament, A First Family's Sleigh Ride
3" x 3 ¾"
Non-tarnishing 24k gold-finished brass
The 2004 White House Christmas Ornament honors President Rutherford B. Hayes and recreates a snowy scene of a sleigh in winter on the North Lawn of the White House. President Hayes loved the season, and wintry weather invigorated him. He enjoyed taking his family and guests out on sleigh rides in the hills around Washington. Laughter, mingled with the jingling of sleigh bells, filled the crisp air of the White House grounds.
