Every holiday season—under the guidance of the current First Lady—countless volunteers decorate the White House for Christmas. Jacqueline Kennedy started the festive tradition 60 years ago, when she founded the nonprofit organization, which works to preserve the history of the storied presidential home. (Her first Christmas decoration theme of choice? "The Nutcracker.")

This year, expect to see the Bidens' Christmas decor on full display in the virtual tour, as well as decorations from past administrations. There's even a closer look at the many gingerbread houses on display in the People's House!

“The new White House Holiday Tour on our mobile app offers a unique look into the annual traditions and decor that past and present presidencies have adopted,” said Stewart McLaurin, president of the White House Historical Association, in a statement. “Our objective is always to provide the public access to the evolving history of the White House in honor of our founder, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.”
