The popular annual holiday special premieres Sunday, Dec. 13, at 6 p.m. ET/PT and offers exclusive access to the grandeur of this year’s décor theme, America the Beautiful.

Narrated by Alison Victoria, star of Windy City Rehab, the special also is a retrospective on the last decade of incredible holiday transformations at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The 2020 theme America the Beautiful is a tribute to the majesty of our great nation and a celebration of the country’s boundless natural wonders. White House Christmas 2020 showcases the theme throughout the home’s magnificent holiday displays, including foliage that represents the country’s diverse landscapes beautifully displayed in the East Colonnade and ornaments crafted by students that capture the unique beauty of each state hung on the official Blue Room tree.
