We’re counting down to Christmas with a new holiday party tip, decorating idea or DIY project every day until December 25. Miss a day? See all the posts here.

I’m a sucker for holiday home tours, and we, at HGTV, have one of the best ones yet. Every year, designer and host Genevieve Gorder takes you behind the scenes at the White House at Christmastime. During this one-hour, on-air special (that premiered Saturday night), viewers got an exclusive look at what goes into making America’s First Home so spectacular for the holidays. Did you know that the White House gingerbread house weighs 300 pounds?! And, the official White House Christmas tree is 18-feet-6-inches tall!

Countdown to Christmas: White House Christmas

If you missed the on-air premiere, that’s OK. You can catch upcoming episodes over the next few weeks.

Want a sneak peek right now? I thought so. Check it out! Decorating America’s First Home for the Holidays >>
