Last night I was honored to attend the White House Historical Association’s 2016 Christmas Ornament Unveiling.
Each year this is a special event as it celebrates and honors a president or significant White House anniversary with the unveiling of the ornament. ChemArt, a Veteran-owned company, creates the ornament for the White House.
This year’s ornament was a gorgeous red fire engine in honor of Herbert Hoover’s presidency and the 1929 White House fire that occurred on Christmas Eve. Children who attended the White House Christmas Eve party were evacuated and received a red fire engine the following year as a gift.
You can buy your 2016 ornament here.
Here are a few pics of the party. My oldest daughter Ava was my date!
