Happy Holidays

As you think of the many things you are thankful for this holiday season, may the many blessings of our nation fill your heart with joy. And in the coming years, celebrate America by visiting as many national parks as you can!

The White House Visitor Center

During the holiday season, replicas of this year’s White House decorations will be on display at the Visitor Center, located inside the north end of the Department of Commerce building, between 14th and 15th Streets at 1450 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. The Center is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. You will find interesting exhibits, tourist information, and helpful park rangers to answer your questions.

In Appreciation

The White House is grateful to Michael Glenn Monroe for creating the artwork for this program. Mr. Monroe has illustrated many children’s books including A Wish to be a Christmas Tree, authored by his wife, Colleen Monroe. Mr. and Mrs. Monroe have three children, Matthew, Natalie, and John, and reside in Brighton, Michigan.
