Holiday in the National Parks

2007 Program Graphic

The Blue Room

The official White House Christmas Tree is the holiday highlight of the Blue Room. This year’s tree, an 18-foot Fraser fir from Laurel Springs, North Carolina, was presented to the White House by Joe Freeman and Linda Jones of Mistletoe Meadows Christmas Tree Farm. Mr. Freeman and Ms. Jones won this honor by being named the 2007 National Grand Champion Growers by the National Christmas Tree Association.

The ornaments represent the 391 national parks, memorials, seashores, historic sites, and monuments across our country and were decorated by artists selected by the sites. Each ornament reflects the diversity of our national landscapes and the many wonderful and unique treasures found from sea to shining sea!
