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.
Which came first: the jolly, white-haired Santa or a cold, refreshing Coke®? As history tells it, the Coca-Cola company became a major player in the shaping of Santa, and we all know the kind, laughing Santa with rosy cheeks and full belly finishes his day with a delicious coca-cola.
She’s the one that tirelessly gives to all. She never complains and deserves something nice. Sometimes the people closest to us are the hardest ones to shop for. It can be hard to express the depth of your feelings and gratitude for your wife. Finding the perfect Christmas gift for your wife is no easy task, but finding the perfect gift is worth it.
