Christmas Decorations

Well, the decorations are up inside the White House but the Wade household probably won't begin decorating until this weekend.

This account of the Christmas traditions of various First Families is interesting. I didn't know of Theodore Roosevelt's aversion to Christmas trees but had heard how Franklin Roosevelt would read A Christmas Carol to his family on Christmas Eve.

My guess is that FDR condensed it a bit.
