White House holiday decorations available for 360 tour via Google Street View


The White House holiday decorations are making their digital debut, getting a reveal on Google Maps Street View.

Jill Biden announced Friday that this year’s Christmastime decor — which she unveiled earlier this week — could now be toured by virtual visitors.

The theme for this year’s White House decorations is “Gifts from the Heart.”

The Google Maps Street View version of the White House’s holiday look comes as tours of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. are currently closed to visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first lady’s press office said last month that a variety of “interactive viewing experiences” for the holiday decorations will be available this year in addition to Google Maps Street View, including on Instagram, Snapchat and others.

“As we celebrate our first holiday season in the White House, we are inspired by the Americans we have met across the country, time and again reminding us that our differences are precious and our similarities infinite,” President Biden and Jill Biden said in a joint statement on Monday.
