Democrat Hillary Clinton failed to win the hard-fought race to the White House but a look at the recently released Christmas decorations at the White House shows she still has a spot in the presidential building.
A photo of this year’s Christmas decoration at the White House left many jaws dropping after some keen observers spotted the portrait of the veteran politician hanging on a wall in Cross Hall between two snowman figures and above a small table holding holiday baubles.
The portrait, painted in 2003, by Simmie Knox featured the democrat Clinton donning black pantsuits, standing by a table carrying her book, “It Takes a Village”.
Foreign media, who had an early look at the building reported that the magnificent and ever-charming building has been decked out with 63 Christmas trees, 109 wreaths, and thousands of bows, ahead of the official opening of the much-awaited White House Christmas Decoration.
The White House dinning room is said to be decorated with 56 gingerbread houses nestled in tree branches – one for each state and territory – created out of Legos.
Other White House decor includes giant replicas of the State First Dogs — Bo and Sunny. Both replica were manufactured out of 25,000 yarn pom poms. The decorations were reportedly put up by 92 volunteers chosen from around the country.
The White House announced this year’s theme to be: “The Gift of the Holidays,” one that “reflects on not only the joy of giving and receiving, but also the true gifts of life, such as service, friends and family, education, and good health.”
This year’s Christmas will be the last holiday season for President Barack Obama and his family in the White House, as newly-elected Republican Donald Trump will be taking over the headship of the White House in January.
Remarkably, the milliary families were the first to have an early look at this year’s White House Christmas Decoration.
