CHICAGO, IL — Fresh off of her trip to Washington D.C. for the annual White House Christmas, former Director of Events Laura Schwartz gave an insider look into the planning and traditions that keep the capital buzzing every holiday season. She reflected on her own experience pulling the celebration together as well as the new approach the Obama administration has taken to wow their specially invited guests.

The segment starts with the U.S. Military Tree, which is used to honor active and veteran service members and comes equipped with iPads to send encouraging messages and well wishes. It also included such highlights as the vintage Vermeil room gleaming with gold-plated silver and even a 500-pound gingerbread house!

The glitz and glamor of the White House Christmas in many ways can be replicated, and Laura encourages Fox viewers to bring a little D.C. magic into their homes this December. It was a privilege for Laura to return to the capitol and catch up with old friends and colleagues, as well as chat with Mr. and Mrs. Obama and wish them a very merry Christmas!
