White House Christmas Ornaments

Christmas has been celebrated at the White House since 1803. The first record of a tree in the White House was in 1889, when President Harrison decorated a live tree with tinsel and popcorn. Since then, a trimmed Christmas tree has become a White House tradition. 

Since 1981, the White House Historical Association has produced an annual White House Christmas ornament. Each ornament has featured a presidential administration, starting with George Washington and continuing chronologically.
