In 1972, Pat Nixon began a White House Christmas tradition of her own: the first White House Gingerbread House. Purportedly, President Nixon would sneak a bite or two from the house when he believed no one was watching. Mrs. Nixon also began the tradition of a candlelight tour of the White House during the 1971 Holiday Season. Stay tuned….tomorrow I will post a more recent, and dramatically larger, house.

Enjoy every day of this Christmas season!
