HGTV to Premiere ‘White House Christmas 2018’ on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 6 p.m. ET/PT

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Thousands of dazzling lights, festive cranberry topiaries and the
magnificent 18-foot-tall official Fraser Fir Christmas tree take center
stage in White House Christmas 2018. During the HGTV
special, premiering on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 6 p.m. ET/PT, cameras follow
designer and home renovation star Alison Victoria, White House staff and
volunteers on an exclusive room-by-room tour of the iconic home’s
holiday transformation.

This year’s décor theme, American Treasures, honors the unique
heritage of the United States and is reflected in the holiday décor
throughout the Executive Residence. For example, the Blue Room tree is
dressed in more than 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon with each state and
territory name embroidered in gold. As part of the special, Alison chats
with volunteers and helps hang ornaments, arrange garlands and spray
edible snow on the famed gingerbread replica of the White House.

Fans can visit
for photo galleries of the holiday festivities and can interact via
social media using #WhiteHouseChristmas.
Beginning Dec. 9, at 6 p.m. ET/PT, viewers also can watch this year’s
special—as well as past years of HGTV’s White House Christmas—on
