You’re Invited to Deck the Halls at the 2014 White House Holiday Social

Announcing the 2014 White House Holiday Social, an event where the White House will open its doors for people who engaged with us on social media and give them an opportunity to participate in the Holiday festivities themselves!

In keeping with President and First Lady's vision to make the Obama White House as accessible as possible, a few times a year the White House opens its doors to people who engage with us on social media. And that time has come, once again! On Monday, December 15, we are inviting tweeters, instagrammers, viners, and Facebook fans from across the country to take part in the 2014 holiday festivities and learn about the White House holiday preparations at the 2014 White House Holiday Social.

Visitors selected to participate in the Holiday Social will tour the White House, which has been transformed for the holidays, and will meet with some of the people responsible for the success of this year’s holiday decorations.

So, if you want to see the White House this holiday season in person, apply now for your chance to join other White House social media followers at the White House Holiday Social. And of course, while you’re here, share your experience using #WHHolidays.

To be eligible, you must follow an official White House Twitter, Instagram, Vine or Facebook account. After you sign up, spread the word! Let your followers know that you applied to attend the White House Holiday Social using #WHHolidays.
