The George W. Bush Presidential Center will present Holidays at the Bush Center, an all-new spectacular calendar of dazzling exhibits, exciting events, and fun activities. Highlights include towering Christmas trees, holiday history, music, crafts, and more.

Every Saturday in December at 9 am, 10:30 am, and noon, Education Docents will share fascinating stories about White House Christmas traditions. Find out about President Andrew Jackson's indoor snowball fight, why President Theodore Roosevelt’s son hid a Christmas tree in an upstairs closet, what animal President Grover Cleveland gave each of his Cabinet members as a gift, and more.

In addition to free holiday craft sessions for everyone, several talented community choirs are scheduled to perform in the Bush Center’s Freedom Hall throughout the holiday season. Finally, Santa will make a special appearance on the day after Thanksgiving.
