Holiday Tour

On December 4, 2000, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton announced the 2000 White House holiday theme, "Holiday Reflections." To honor the past, the White House has been decorated with ornaments, wreaths, trees, mantelpieces and a gingerbread masterpiece that reflect the seven Christmas themes of the Clinton Administration — Angels (1993), The Twelve Days of Christmas (1994), 'Twas the Night Before Christmas (1995), The Nutcracker (1996), Santa's Workshop (1997), Winter Wonderland (1998) and Holiday Treasures at the White House (1999).
The Administration began in the "Year of the American Craft". In 1993, Mrs. Clinton invited premier artisans to begin The White House Collection of American Crafts. During the 1993 holiday season, Mrs. Clinton asked craftsmen from across the country to create ornaments depicting the first theme, "Angels". The season resulted in an incredible accumulation of one-of-a-kind ornaments designed especially for the White House. The Year of the American Craft resulted in thousands of artists — from elementary school art students to professional artisans — participating in Christmas at the White House.

It is with great pleasure that we invite you participate in Christmas at the White House and to embark upon a reflection of holidays past at the White House.
