Barbara Bush selects a Old World Christmas ornament!
In 1961, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy started the White House tradition of selecting an official holiday theme. For her daughter, Caroline, Mrs. Kennedy created a Nutcracker-themed Christmas at the White House – and the tradition has lived on ever since.
This also included the president's wife choosing an official ornament to signify their endeavors as First Lady. Barbara Bush chose to decorate her tree with tiny books and popular characters from children’s books to reflect her favorite cause as First Lady – literacy. When it came time to pick just one ornament to represent her legacy, Barbara Bush chose the Old World Christmas Stack of Books ornament. Our ornament is now exquisitely displayed in the Grand Foyer of the White House every Christmas Season! We are truly honored and humbled to have even just a small connection to the amazing Barbara Bush through one of our Christmas ornaments!
Rachael Mitchell is a freelance writer based in Seattle, Washington, and has over 15 years of writing experience. She’d never be able to pick just one favorite ornament, but narrowed it down to the S’more and Tennis Ball. She always looks forward to s’mores in the summer with friends and family adding gourmet ingredients, and played 4 years of college tennis in the mid-west.
2020 hasn’t been all that conducive with Christmas cheer and holiday spirit, it has felt more like a punch in the face instead of a typical year. Though we might miss out on the typical Christmas tree lightings, Secret Santas and holiday parties, it does not mean we have to miss out on Christmas spirit. Of course Old World Christmas believes that Christmas spirit can be lived out all year long, but we have a few ideas to help you transform from the spirit of the Grinch into spirit of Buddy the Elf. Because there’s no one who feels more passionate about Christmas than Buddy.
So, they’re basically impossible to shop for. If they need it, they buy it for themselves. They have everything. What are you going to buy your parents for Christmas? Old World Christmas and our Christmas ornaments are here to help.
