As with most of us, home, especially now, is a wonderful refuge from the rest of the world and its attendant problems. All the more so, perhaps, if you could retreat to America’s first historic home. It must be a joy in it’s historic perspective as well, abiding in a place that set the tone for so many who must have come to love it there. JFK and Jackie, Ulysses and Julia Grant, the Obamas.

Now imagine spending it here.

This is where Christmas goes to die.
