The President and First Lady Create a Spotify Christmas Playlist

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama released their favorite holiday tunes on @Spotify just in time for Christmas. Listen now at go.wh.gov/ObamaHoliday.

Spending time with our children and grandchildren is our favorite part of the holiday season. We have photos of them all around the house, of course, but they’re incorporated throughout our holiday decorations, too. These little chalkboards with their names on them hang above the fireplace in our foyer. The backing you see under the garland is made of crayons. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a few of the decorations at the @VP’s Residence. From Joe and I, and the whole Biden family, happy holidays to you and yours. God bless our troops and their families. –@DrBiden #WHHolidays
