Christmas at the White House: A Look Inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

Bo's in the Holiday Spirit!

For the third year in a row, there is a replica of Bo Obama, the world famous first pooch, as part of the holiday decorations at the White House. It is the work of one volunteer alone who toiled away for 85 hours (!) stringing 18,000 black pompons and 2,000 white pompons together to create this model of one of the most popular White House attractions. Bo also left his mark in eight other rooms of the White House with special "Bo-Ornaments" that kids and adults (including this reporter) try to find during the tour. (I should note that I saw the real Bo during our White House tour but wasn't quick enough to catch a photo before he headed out for a run on the South Lawn!)
