HGTV will capture the spectacular holiday transformation of America's most iconic house when White House Christmas 2023 premieres on Sunday, Dec. 10, at 6 p.m. ET/PT. During the one-hour special, First Lady Jill Biden will lead hosts Drew and Jonathan Scott (Property Brothers: Forever Home, Celebrity IOU) on a tour of the historic home decorated by more than 300 dedicated volunteers from across the country and White House Residence staff. This year's theme, The "Magic, Wonder, and Joy" of the Holidays, will capture the pure, unfiltered delight and imagination of childhood, encouraging everyone to open their hearts to the joy of the season. The theme will be brought to life by an astounding array of decorations, including over 142,425 holiday lights; 98 Christmas trees; 33,892 ornaments; 22,000 bells; and many inspirational décor ideas fans can recreate at home.
White House Christmas 2023 will feature every aspect of the festive holiday displays, including the Gold Star Tree honoring fallen service members; the ground floor corridor filled with letters to Santa ready to be mailed to the North Pole; and the majestic official White House Christmas Tree in the Blue Room. Drew and Jonathan also will get a preview of the 2023 Gingerbread White House with elements inspired by the 200th anniversary of the publication of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. The First Lady also will showcase a special installation in the Grand Foyer - Santa's enchanting red sleigh and his famous reindeer suspended in mid-air.
As part of the White House holiday process, Drew and Jonathan will help the carpentry shop and volunteers assemble the Advent calendars on display in the East Room and Jonathan will assist in the decoration of the rooftop tree above the East Entrance.
"After working on this show in some capacity for almost two decades, I can tell you that this year's decorations are some of the most whimsical and magical that I have ever seen," said Loren Ruch, Head of Content, HGTV. "Everyone will love watching the White House come to life for the holidays, so it's a wonderful time to bring the whole family together for an extra special viewing experience."
