The 2008 White House Christmas ornament pays tribute to the tenure of President Benjamin Harrison, who served from 1889 to 1893, and is recognized as a centennial president, inaugurated a century after George Washington. Drawing inspiration from the Harrison family’s Victorian Christmas tree, the first documented tree to grace the White House, this ornament, with its 24-karat gold finish, depicts a resplendent tree adorned with baubles, garlands, treats, and toys. Nestled under the tree are gifts for the Harrison grandchildren, including a toy train and sled for Benjamin, a doll on a tricycle for Mary, and a cherished dollhouse for Marthena. A towering three-foot Santa Claus adds the finishing touch to this festive scene, capturing the spirit of President Harrison’s words, “We shall have an old-fashioned Christmas Tree for the grandchildren upstairs, and I shall be their Santa Claus myself.”
