Tis The Season To Spread Joy


By Jueseppi B.

 

A-2AjsSCcAA4te1“This year’s theme is ‘Joy to All.’ It celebrates the many joys of the holiday seasons: the joy of giving and service to others; the joy of sharing our blessings with one another; and, of course, the joy of welcoming our friends and families as guests into our homes over these next several weeks.

-First Lady Michelle Obama, November 28, 2012
 
 
 
 
This year’s decorations also pay tribute to our Armed Forces and their families. The walls of the East Landing are adorned with wreaths crafted with red, white, and blue yarn, and a Christmas tree decorated with festive, patriotic ornaments completes the space. The official White House Christmas tree, which stands tall in the center of the Blue Room, honors the courageous service of the troops, veterans, and military families who serveour country with pride. The 18-foot-6- inch Fraser Fir from Jefferson, North Carolina is trimmed with ornaments decorated by military children living on U.S. Military Bases all over the world, and these one-of-a-kind ornaments honor their parents’ commitment to service.
 
 
 
 

TRIBUTES TO OUR HEROES

 

The very first tree visitors see as they enter the White House this holiday season honors our men and women in uniform for the extraordinary sacrifices they and their families have made. The tree in the East Landing is decorated with special Gold Star ornaments bearing the names of some of America’s greatest heroes – those who gave their lives for our country. And any Gold Star family who visits the White House is invited to decorate their own ornament to honor their loved one.

 

All visitors will have the opportunity to fill out Operation Honor Cards, pledging to serve their community in honor of ourmilitary families, service members, and veterans.

 

And in the Blue Room, a very special “Joining Forces” tree is covered with hand-decorated ornaments made by military children living on U.S. bases around the world as a way to honor their parents’ commitment to serve.

The 2012 Gingerbread White House

 

The 2012 holiday décor at the White House features a 300 pound representation of the President’s’ house made entirely from edible treats. Pastry Chef Bill Yosses and his talented team spent months planning, baking, building and decorating the structure. The time lapse video lets you see how Chef Yosses and his team put the whole project together.
