Christmas Tree at Jimmy Carter Library & Museum

1980 White House Christmas Tree recreated at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum. Dolls, doll houses, and toys decorate this Victorian-style tree.

To celebrate the holidays, NBC will air “A White House Christmas: First Families Remember” television special tonight, Thursday, December 20th (8-9 pm ET). An encore presentation of the special will air Friday, December 21st (9-10 pm ET).

“Hosted by multiple Emmy Award winner Meredith Vieira, the special takes a look at Christmases past and present with 10 presidential families over the last 50 years, featuring interviews with First Lady Michelle Obama and former First Ladies Laura Bush, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barbara Bush and Rosalynn Carter. Several First Children also share their holiday memories, including Barbara Bush, Jenna Bush Hager, Chelsea Clinton, Dorothy Bush Koch, Michael Reagan, Amy Carter, Susan Ford Bales, Tricia Nixon Cox, Julie Nixon Eisenhower, Lynda Johnson Robb and Luci Baines Johnson.” –NBC.com

If you are expecting company for the holidays or are traveling to spend time with others, perhaps you are still hunting for a recipe worthy of a Presidential Potluck. If so, check out the National Archives’ Blog, “Prologue: Pieces of History,” for a selection of holiday recipes, many of which could be used throughout the year.

Best wishes to all and “see you” again in 2013!
