White House Christmas and Hanukkah: Time-Lapse Video Captures Decorating -- PICTURES

November 30, 2011

From making cookies to hanging garlands, some 400 volunteers assisted with transforming the people's house into a holiday wonderland. The White House on Wednesday released a time-lapse video capturing the transformation. More than 85,000 visitors are expected in the White House this holiday season.
