Issued annually by the White House Historical Association, Official White House Christmas Ornaments are hung on millions of Christmas trees each December. But the ornament program did not begin as a series. When the Angel Gabriel ornament was issued by the Association in 1981, it was an immediate success and the phenomenon began. Today the ornaments are a popular collector’s item and a long-standing and beloved tradition. This book includes the collected stories behind the design of each of the forty-three ornaments issued from 1981 to 2023. The forty-third ornament, made for 2023, honors President Gerald R. Ford with a festive holiday wreath decorated with symbols from Ford's life and presidency.
