2022 White House Historical Association Nixon Christmas Ornament

The 2022 Official Ornament of the White House Historical Association features a gingerbread White House. And when you open the box, the scent of gingerbread will waft up to your senses.

About the ornament

President and Mrs. Nixon began candlelight tours of the Mansion during their first Christmas in the White House. Mrs. Nixon offered TV specials of Christmas at the White House for those who could not visit in person. In 1969 for the first time in 25 years green wreaths and red candles were hung in the 16 windows facing Pennsylvania Avenue. "We love to decorate, you can't overdo at Christmas" Pat Nixon told the Evening Star.

Why gingerbread?

The First Lady introduced the first Gingerbread House into White House decorations (see the image from 1972 of her with the gingerbread house). The White House chef created a 3 foot 45 pound cottage complete with Hansel and Gretal. The tradition of the White House gingerbread house continues to this day as commemorated by the White House Historical Association in honoring the administration of Richard M. Nixon (1969-1974).
