George W. Bush Presidential Center presents “Holiday in the National Parks: Christmas in the White House 2007”
The George W. Bush Presidential Center will celebrate the holidays with the all-new exhibit, "Holiday in the National Parks: Christmas in the White House 2007." The exhibition allows visitors a glimpse into the magical White House holiday celebrations of 2007.
Reflecting our nation’s landscapes and historical sites, the special exhibit will be adorned with traditional and elegant decorations such as mixed greenery, gold ribbons, poinsettias, and white flowers. Models of the Alamo, the Frederic Douglass House, Mount Rushmore, Spanish missions, and more are incorporated into the exhibit, as well as behind-the-scenes photos of Mrs. Bush’s 31 visits to and 45 events in support of the National Parks.
There will be a replica of the official White House Blue Room Christmas tree, which will be covered in gold stars, gold beaded garland, and 347 gold ball ornaments - each hand painted by a National Park artisan to reflect park treasures from sea to shining sea.
