To celebrate and pay tribute to past White House holidays and honor the former First Ladies, four unique and decorated trees stand in the Grand Foyer.

First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy started the tradition of having an official White House Christmas theme. Jackie O loved the ballet, and so her first Christmas theme for the White House was the Nutcracker.

This year First Lady Michelle wanted to pay tribute to the themes the First Ladies had chosen over the years, so she used their ornaments on four trees in the White House Grand Foyer. You can check out some of them below!

As you know, First Lady Michelle spends a lot of her time helping children. This Christmas she collected toys for Toys for Tots and volunteered to help sort the gifts that will end up in the hands of children in need.

And as always, she looked great in a salmon colored cowl neck top!

Christmas in Washington is a benefit concert for Children's National Medical center attended by the Obama family every year. President Obama had this to say about the event:

Tonight is a chance to get in the Christmas spirit, to spread some joy and sing along with artists who have much better voices than we do. But it’s also a chance to make a real difference in the lives of some very brave young people being treated at Children’s National Medical Center.  Many of these kids and their parents are going through tough times right now, and your support helps give them a reason to hope – not just during the holidays, but all year round.
