The Last Bush Christmas

Earlier this week readers got into the holiday by spirit by enjoying the ever popular "Barney Cam" White House video. But that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to White House Christmas celebrations. It's been years since I attended my first White House Christmas party hosted by President and Mrs. Reagan, but I am glad to see the Bush's maintaining and expanding on the holiday tradition. With all the unknowns of what may happen with the next Administration we can all enjoy this last Bush Christmas in the White House!

The President and Mrs. Laura Bush traditionally invite children to a White House celebration for the holidays, and this year, the audience included kids of active duty and reserve military service members from Russell Elementary at Quantico Marine Base, Dahlgren School at Dahlgren Navy Base and West Meade Elementary at Ft. Meade Army Base. White House photo by Eric Draper

Make sure to check out the ornaments designed by artists for each state and Congressional district which decorate the tree in the Blue Room.

Merry Christmas!
