The 2011 White House Christmas ornament honors the administration of Theodore Roosevelt, the twenty-sixth president of the United States, and it reflects the excitement that President Roosevelt, his wife Edith, and their lively young family brought to life at the White House. The front face of the Teddy Roosevelt White House Christmas ornament is a color illustration derived from a political cartoon drawn by William A. Rogers in 1901. Capturing the anticipation associated with the family’s first White House Christmas, a jolly Santa Clause crosses the North Lawn carrying a large bag of toys over his shoulder and announces, “I hear that there are some kids in the White House this year.”
