The President and Mrs. Bush invite you to enjoy this online presentation of "Home for the Holidays," the theme for this year's holiday season at the White House. Because this year's holiday season follows a national tragedy, both home and family have special meaning to all Americans. Gatherings of loved ones - familiar faces in familiar places - can be a tremendous source of strength and reassurance during this season of remembrance and goodwill. In keeping with the theme, replicas of some of the family homes of the nation's Presidents were designed, built and decorated by White House staff members.

Bring these presidential homes into yours by downloading a tour of the decorations. Use the 360 degree tour to scroll up and around the State Rooms of the People's House or take a more traditional look at photos of the decorations.
