Once Upon a Time Your State Might Have Been Involved with Decorating the White House For Christmas

What you say? How? When? Why? Really?

Yes, really! There is disagreement about which president displayed the first White House Christmas tree. But, by all reports, it was Jackie Kennedy who established the tradition of displaying a themed Christmas tree in the Blue Room of the White House (Christmas 1961). Since then at the beginning of each Christmas season the White House receives a beautiful, perfect tree to be decorated and proudly stand in the Blue Room as the official White House Christmas Tree.
