First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton announced the 1999 White House holiday theme "Holiday Treasures at the White House" at the White House in Washington, D.C. on December 6, 1999.  The traditional Gingerbread creation, located in the State Dining Room, is a confectionery tribute to some of the historic treasures around our nation's capitol.  White House pastry chefs created this delicious masterpiece to take us back to 19th century Washington, surrounded by four timeless landmarks at Christmas time: The White House, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, and Mount Vernon.  The spectacular creation would not be complete without its marzipan Potomac River and the chocolate trees that line its banks.  .Credit: Ron Sachs / CNP
