Merry Christmas!

To those of you who celebrate, Merry Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying my White House tour, I know I am. Thank you so much for your informative comments. I have to admit I sadly know very little about this important building's history and am enjoying the lesson!

A very enjoyable tour! It is interesting to see, for better or for worse, what has changed and what has stayed the same.

Stefan,
Thank you for this marvelous series on the White House Christmas, it's delightful. Thank you, too, for the other series you've blessed us with in 2010. Your blog is a "must read" of mine, and I always look forward to opening it up,as I never know what treasures I will find in it. Merry Christmas to you, belatedly, and Happy Boxing Day to you and yours, Reggie

Your posts are always so informative and well-written. I feel that I am seeing the White House for the first time through your eyes. I love lots of the detail work but can't believe they still have that tacky wallpaper border in the Blue Room. And you're right -- the Empire furniture is too much.

Happy Late Christmas! You should talk to Janet's friend KDM about the White House. He's a font of knowledge, as he worked for the White House Historical Society, or something like that.

Totally snowed by our reporter at the White House. Hope you are snowed in with a well-stocked bar...maybe fridge. We know that you have oodles to read. Wishing you all the very best in the coming year, AD.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and are doing something fun New Years Eve.

I love this tour of the White House. I hate to *lol* nit pick; but do you think the upper support of the capital in the top photo was repaired, or is it just the way it has aged?

Duchess, I think thats just the veining in the marble (and a blurry photograph!).
