Can ayone share there experience in visiting the White house or volunteering for Christmas?
I 've seen recently where they paid tribute to the troops at the White House and what it takes to decorate it and people that past through for the christmas season
Hi, man I visited Obama last Christmas he and I are close personal friends and we carved the turkey together. Man he loves his turkey, he he...just kidding actually I'd be interested in seeing who answers this question that has actually spent Christmas at the white house
I only visited the White House once at Christmas, and that was many, many years ago when Reagan was president (1981 or 1982, I think). And yes, it is an elaborate affair.
The ceremonial rooms, many of which are large, are all decked out as one might expect of a building open to the public. At the time it was probably the Red Room, the Green Room, the Blue Room and the East Room at least. Don't remember too many specifics except for a large decorated gingerbread house that was sitting on a table.
As for crowds, the White House always draws them. Until they developed a Disney-like ticket system, long, long lines were the norm at any time of the year. I don't know how much longer they were at Christmas but I remember standing in line for an awfully long time that evening.
If one gets the opportunity, though, one should definitely go.
But from what I've seen on this year's feature on decorating the White House the ginger bread house was introduce after that time as they took a glimpse i think of the last 10 years how it looked or was designed
