Which president banned Christmas trees in the white house?

“President Theodore Roosevelt.

When I was a kid fifty years ago, President Theodore Roosevelt had a bad rap. We learned that way back in the 1900s, he banned Christmas trees from the White House.”

The Christmas tree in the White House is a sign of nature. In 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt had no Christmas trees in the White House at Christmas. The reason for this may be in a letter to the White House in 1899. The letter stated that the Christmas tree is a German tradition! So there is no reason for us to use it in America and the White House.

After that, in 1904, 1907, and 1922, the White House did not have a Christmas tree.

The Christmas tree is bought from different parts of the world. The Christmas tree has been seen many times in the Blue Room since 1961. Of course, sometimes Christmas trees can be seen in the entrance hall of the White House.
