White House Xmas Theme: 'Reflect, Rejoice, Renew'

Wednesday, 02 Dec 2009 01:51 PM


WASHINGTON -- Christmas at the White House is being celebrated with recycled ornaments, natural materials and, of course, a gingerbread White House. The work of culinary art is covered in white chocolate and features family dog, Bo.

First lady Michelle Obama previewed the decorations on Wednesday.

The centerpiece of the White House Christmas decor stands in the Blue Room: an 18 1/2-foot Douglas fir lit with environmentally sound lights, hundreds of ornaments from past administrations that were sent out for refurbishing, and gold ribbons and bows.

Mrs. Obama's vegetable garden also makes an appearance at the gingerbread house.

More than 50,000 people are expected to attend 28 holiday parties and open houses at the White House.
