Jacqueline Kennedy began the tradition of using a theme for Christmas decorations and employing that theme on a tree in the Blue Room of the White house. In 1961, the theme was “Nutcracker Suite”, and the tree was filed with ornaments based upon the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky. The attached photograph is of the Kennedy’s in 1962 when the theme was “childhood.”

Enjoy every day of this Christmas season!
