Where is the White House Christmas decorating show?
self | 10/26/11 | self

Posted on 10/26/2011 5:10:29 PM PDT by Pining_4_TX

While GWB was in office, HGTV had a program every year about the White House Christmas decorations. My sister-in-law wondered what happened to these shows. Did we just miss them, or has HGTV stopped making them since Obama was elected?

Nor have there been any stories or pictures of any decorating that the Obamas have done in the White House. My SIL and I find this curious. Perhaps there are no Christmas decorations in the White House during Obama's time in office. Anyone know?

They don’t decorate for ramadan.

That’s exactly what I was thinking.

HGTV had a White House Christmas show in 2009 and 2010.

It’s October right now - says so at the bottom right of my computer screen. Anyone who’s decorating for Christmas is insane.

Probably because of their decorating themes . . .

Ah, thank you. We just missed it, I guess.

Yes, but we old folks have to bring these things up when we think of them. Otherwise we would forget by December. ;-)

According the the media, the Obama family doesn’t celebrate Christmas.

The national Christmas tree was put up, I think, but mostly for show.

Obama has only gone to church maybe half a dozen times since he was inaugurated, and that was evidently for show, too. It seems pretty clear that he is not really a Christian.

LOL!

The next town up the road from mine is putting up their decorations already. I theorize that the work crew from First Baptist Church told them, “Do it now or we’ll be too busy!”

Wow, that is really sad. It won’t be long before people are putting up Christmas lights in August.

Oprah got the first decorating special on her network. That's when we all found out about the MAO ornaments. I guess HGTV isn't black enough for the Obamas.

Anyone remember last year when the tree was brought to the White House?

Well, Michelle and the girls walk out and Michelle acts like she has to think about accepting it and says, “Ok, we’ll take it.”

The girls are walking around it, not quite sure what to do with a Christmas tree and MO stands by them and wafts her hands up to her face like she is smelling her own farts and says something like, “Mmmmmm, pine.”

Complete disgrace. No class at all. The complete antithesis of the elegant Laura Bush. They completely destroyed the moment that stands for so much for so many.

Aha! That would explain why I missed it. I have never watched anything featuring, by, or about Oprah.

They had one on the first year Obama was in office I know because I refused to watch it. I refuse to watch anything with the Obamas featured as they make me sick

The local Home Depot had all the Christmas decorations out on the last week of September. Not sure if that was a national thing, but it wouldn’t surprise me. I have to admit I bought a couple of ornaments at the Hallmark store a couple weeks ago.

I agree completely. I have my TV remote handy in case his smug mug pops up on the screen.

Thank you, I’ll be here all week!

I have more, from 2008, but I’m saving ‘em up for a December to Remember!

The official White House site doesn’t have anything on 2011 yet, it is still displaying 2010 info.
http://www.whitehouse.gov/holidays

It looks like, though, that they didn’t start posting information last year until December 3rd so it is probably way too early.

When President Bush was in office during Christmas they had the Barney cam and it would show their cute little dog running around the White House I enjoyed seeing that as well as the White House being decorated it was a class act!

Every time they display their total ignorance, they remind me of the Beverly Hillbillies. That image just pops into my mind and those people are totally out of their league.

I seem to recall that during the first year this outfit soiled the WH it was decreed that the Christmas Nativity Scene was not to be set up because this WH wanted a ‘Non religious Christmas”...only after a huge outcry was it finally put up in an area where tourists tour the WH.
What else should we expect from closet muzzies.

Our Dollar General has had Christmas stuff since the end of July/ early August. Our W-M since September.

I actually bought a Cardinal ornament in September because they often sell out or just disappear from our store. Our store is already discounting Thanksgiving stuff and it’s not even Halloween yet. It is a case of if you want it you better get it asap or it might be gone.

It’s not when they put out the stuff it is when they start playing the dang music that annoys me.
