White House holiday decor honors COVID-19 frontline workers

WASHINGTON (AP) — Decorations unveiled for Joe and Jill Biden’s first White House Christmas honor frontline workers who persevered during the COVID-19 pandemic. Nurses, doctors, teachers, grocery store workers and others who stayed on the job are recognized in this year’s Gingerbread White House. It was made into a gingerbread village with the addition of a school, police, fire and gas stations, a hospital, a post office, a grocery store and a warehouse. Volunteer decorators trimmed 41 Christmas trees and hung some 6,000 feet of ribbon and more than 10,000 ornaments for the holidays.
