The 2022 Official Ornament of the White House Historical Association features a gingerbread White House. And when you open the box, the scent of gingerbread will waft up to your senses.
President and Mrs. Nixon began candlelight tours of the Mansion during their first Christmas in the White House. Mrs. Nixon offered TV specials of Christmas at the White House for those who could not visit in person. In 1969 for the first time in 25 years green wreaths and red candles were hung in the 16 windows facing Pennsylvania Avenue. “We love to decorate, you can’t overdo at Christmas” Pat Nixon told the Evening Star.
We will have the ornaments for $22.00, the profit of $5.00 benefitting Workcamp. The ornaments will be available November 13 from 8:30 to 11:30 in the vestibule of the church. Please email Betsy Coffey if you would like to reserve one or more at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
