Every room in the White House is decorated with this year's theme, which the White House explains in a press release, is intended to symbolize "what brings us together during the holiday season and throughout the year."
The East Wing Lobby, for example, is adorned with festive greens and red cardinals, meant to symbolize the presence of lost loved ones, lining the pillars and beams. As a further tribute to lost loved ones, the first Christmas trees displayed on the White House tour are adorned with mirrored gold star ornaments - a representation of fallen service members.

Adorning this year's tree are handcrafted renderings of the official birds from all 57 states, territories and the District of Columbia "that illustrate the beauty and strength that come from unity," the White House said in the press release.
In prepared remarks during the official unveiling of the decorations on Monday, Dr. Biden that her travels around the country helped inform this year's theme.
"In the last two years, I've traveled to almost 40 states -- rural counties and big cities," she said. “Time and time again, the Americans I have met have shown me the soul of our nation. I've seen it everywhere I've gone: when our country comes together, we're stronger. What we share is so much bigger than the things that divide us. The soul of our nation is - and always has been - "we the people". And that's what inspired this year's White House Christmas decorations."
