2023 White House Gingerbread, Biden Administration

This photograph of the White House Gingerbread House 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 White House Gingerbread House, on display in the State Dining Room, commemorated the 200th anniversary of the publication of Twas the Night Before Christmas. The display featured a sugar cookie replica of the book and Santas sleigh soaring over the White House grounds.
