The 2009 White House Christmas ornament is upon us and this year’s edition celebrates the presidency of Grover Cleveland. Cleveland, the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms, was the president from 1885-1889 and 1893-1897. He was also the first president to have electric lights on the White House Christmas tree.
The front of the (deep breathe) 2009 Grover Cleveland White House Christmas Ornament depicts a view of the South lawn and The White House on a winter night. A lit Christmas tree and holiday decorations in the Oval Room can be seen through a window. On the back, the ornament shows one of many famous Cleveland family Christmas parties.
