2023 East Colonnade Holiday Decorations, Biden Administration
This photograph of the East Colonnade was taken by David Wiegold on November 27, 2023 during a press preview of the White House holiday decorations. President Joseph R. Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden selected "Magic, Wonder, and Joy" as the 2023 holiday theme. The decor was inspired by children and how they embrace and revel in the holiday season. Running down the long length of the East Colonnade was a variety of confections suspended from the ceiling along with twinkly yellow lights. The sweet display was meant to remind and invoke memories of the flavors of the holiday season.
