How Michelle Obama Decorated For Her Final Christmas At The White House


This Christmas is the final one for Obama’s family in the White House, and Michelle did her best to make it a great one. This year’s theme The Gift of the Holidays was chosen to reflect the joy of giving and receiving, highlighting the core initiatives of the first lady: education, service and health.

The White House is decorated with 63 trees, 56 Lego gingerbread houses and more for the Obama’s final Christmas at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. So let’s see the photos!
