I first started reading this book around the Christmas season but found I just couldn't finish it all as quickly as I would have liked. I often have this problem with reading a photography book-especially one as breathtaking as this one.

This book is the story of different Presidential First Ladies and their personal and public Christmas trees as well as the unique contribution each woman, and family, had on the White House, both monument and home. The book was written by a variety of contributor

This book is gorgeous! I'm all for e-books, but I think this is a must have in hard copy. The pictures are beautiful. The stories are fun and educational. This was such a delight to read during the past holiday season. It's a book you want to have out to share with family and friends.

I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy this when I requested it from Netgalley. Lucky me!

Thank you to Fife & Drum Press and Netgalley for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased review.

It was quite interesting reading and looking at the old pictures of past presidents and their families during the holiday season.
Wonderful read, enjoyed the history of decorating and loved the stories of the first ladies.
