2015 White House Christmas in Pictures: East Colonnade

As part of the First Lady’s Reach Higher initiative, a collection of hand-cut paper snowflakes hang from the ceiling of the East Colonnade. Some of these snowflakes were made by students from Amidon-Bowen Elementary School and Horton’s Kid in Washington, D.C. and share the hand-written aspirations of these students. Other snowflakes represent each of the 56 states and territories and feature iconic symbols from all across America such as the state flags and seals.
