Every year American families celebrate the holidays by decorating their Christmas trees. The holiday season has arrived and the White House has been celebrating this occasion for years. 2008 Christmas decoration theme was, “A Red, White and Blue Christmas,” celebration. Red, White and Blue were the predominant colors. In the spirit of a tough economy, most of that year’s holiday decoration items were picked from the decoration items used in past Christmas to decorate the White House. More than 60,000 visitors visited the White House for tours, with 25 holiday receptions and 7 dinners planned. It is interesting to know that the official tree holds 369 decorations from artists around the country.
