2023 Red Room Holiday Decorations, Biden Administration

This photograph of the Red Room cranberry tree was taken by David Wiegold on November 27, 2023 during a press preview of the White House holiday decorations. President Joseph R. Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden selected "Magic, Wonder, and Joy" as the 2023 holiday theme. The decor was inspired by children and how they embrace and revel in the holiday season. The 2023 Red Room décor looked to the joy, creativity, and collaboration involved in making holiday crafts. Representing Dr. Bidens Joining Forces initiative, the ornaments in the room featured handprints and painted family portraits made by children with military connections. The cranberry tree is a White House holiday tradition dating back to the Gerald R. Ford administration.
