Season's Greetings from the White House is an excellent source of presidential Christmas/holiday items from the early part of the twentieth century to the present. Each President's holiday greetings along with staff gifts are shown. Mrs. Seeley has written an superb book which continues to grow with each new edition. The quality of photographs and the amount of them in the book make it worth the price. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has an interest in not only presidential items, but for anyone who has any interest in the holiday season.
People my age were taught citizenship in school and were taught to respect the President. I have always been fascinated with the personal lives of the Presidents and the folklore of the White House. This book does not disappoint if you like the "behind the scenes" information on the White House and its past residents. I also recommend the one written for children by the same author. This puts politics aside and restores some pride in the institution of our Presidency and their families.
I have long loved the historical aspect of the White House going back to Mrs. Kennedy's tour of the White House after she redecorated it, so this was another aspect of that history that I enjoyed reading.
This is an excellent book. I ordered two as Christmas presents from two different sources. They both were sealed in plastic. When one was opened as a Christmas present it had an address label affixed inside and a penned name. Very disappointing as I had no indication of this when I ordered it. Embarrassing.
Referring to Wolf of Wall St. Disgusting minus 100 in personal rating. Why does America nominate this trash? Wish I could shout this from the Empire State roof top!!!
