WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says first lady Jill Biden has drawn inspiration from the nation’s founding documents to decorate for the holidays. The first lady’s theme is “We the People.” The White House said Monday the holiday décor represents what unites Americans during the holidays and throughout the year. A copy of the Declaration of Independence is on display in the library. The gingerbread White House includes a replica of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed. New this year is a wooden menorah built by White House carpenters.
