Christmas at the White House
By Jennifer Pickens. Foreword by Laura Bush. Contributions by Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, and Hillary Clinton, 2009
Christmas at the White House beautifully documents the lavish public and private Christmas decorations, celebrations, themes, and traditions spanning half of a century inside the world's most famous address: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Illustrated with more than five hundred exquisite photographs, most of which have never been viewed by the public before, the book is the first documented and published history of fifty years and nine different administrations beginning in the early 1960s with First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who initiated formal Christmas themes at the White House.
