The Official 2016 White House Christmas ornament, inspired by the fire trucks responding to a 1929 White House fire, honors the administration of Herbert Hoover, the thirty-first U.S. president. Crafted from shiny brass plated with nickel and 24-karat gold, the ornament depicts a fire truck delivering a Christmas tree. The fire occurred during a festive party; despite the unfolding crisis, the Hoovers kept calm, and even salvaged crucial documents. Post the fire, which was likely caused by a blocked chimney flue or faulty wiring, Congress allocated funds to rebuild the uninsured office wing, with the Hoovers returning to a restored West Wing in April 1930.
