The White House is unveiling its holiday décor today. The theme for the 2023 White House holiday season is the “Magic, Wonder, and Joy” of the Holidays.
The President and First Lady wrote a welcome letter saying, “The 2023 White House holiday theme is inspired by how children experience this festive season: completely present in the beauty and bounty around them, their senses alight, with hearts open to the magic, wonder, and joy of the holidays. In this season of reflection and goodwill, we hope you will embrace your inner child and delight in simply being present with those you love.”
The statement went on to say, “It is a time for our senses to awaken—for each of us to smell the aroma of favorite family recipes, to hear the warmth of a dear friend’s voice, to see the glow of lights and decorations, to taste the sweetness of candies and treats, and to feel the quiet stillness and strength of faith.”
