Among the Christmas standards is an 18-foot (about 5.5-meter) fir tree in its traditional spot in the Blue Room, decorated with ornaments bearing the seals of every state and US territory.
"Ornaments are hung on a Christmas tree in the Red Room at the White House".
The holiday celebrating begins later Monday with a party for the volunteer decorators and will continue well into December with receptions and parties just about every day sometimes two a day for the next several weeks.

During President Barack Obama's finalChristmas in office, larger-than-life replicas of family dogs Bo and Sunny greeted visitors in the East Wing.
The standout feature, however, would have to be the 160-kilogram gingerbread house in the State Dining Room of the White House.
