Welcome to a Season of Merriment and Melody

President George W. Bush and Laura Bush arrive at the Pageant of Peace to light the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse near the White House Dec. 2, 2004.

Throughout the world, the holiday season is greeted by joyful music that brightens hearts and evokes wonderful memories. This year’s theme brings to the White House the magic of holiday songs that have been favorites for generations of Americans.

The grand halls and splendid rooms of America’s house are decorated with delightful vignettes illustrating many of the best-loved songs of the season. We are grateful to the members of the White House Executive Residence staff who have created these marvelous scenes.

Our thanks go also to the many florists from across the country who give their time, talent and boundless energy to transform the White House into a wonderland of beauty and song.

Enjoy your holiday visit, and sing along!
