Additional Information

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 forty-two ornaments issued from 1981 to 2022. The forty-second ornament, made for 2022, represents the cherished White House tradition of displaying a gingerbread house each holiday in the State Dining Room, which began during the Nixon presidency.
