First Lady Dr. Jill Biden will reveal the theme and decor of the Christmas decorations in the White House on Monday, her office announced. Biden will be joined by a National Guard family in honor of the National Guard’s role in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, a statement from her office said Saturday. The presence of the National Guard family also honors all Guard families who spend their vacations away from their loved ones. This year’s National Guard family includes Captain Maryanne V. Harrell, who serves as unit chief of the District of Columbia Army National Guard Medical Detachment, her husband Levi, and their children Levi II, Marcus, and Elliana. The Harrell family previously joined the first lady for the arrival of the official 2021 Christmas tree in the White House on Monday. Biden also invited Elliana’s second grader from Malcolm Elementary School in Waldorf, Maryland, to the White House to help the first lady unveil the 2021 decorations, the statement from her office said. The first lady will make remarks “thank the over 100 volunteers from the local area who helped decorate the White House” as she reveals the holiday theme, her office said. Biden started the annual tradition of decorating the White House halls on Monday by receiving the White House Christmas tree – an 18.5-foot Fraser spruce from North Carolina that was placed in the oval blue room of the White House. Last year, the White House was decorated with an “America the Beautiful” theme and featured classic holiday decor along with ornaments celebrating frontline workers for former First Family Donald Trump and Melania Trump’s last Christmas in office.
