The Christmas ornament honors Theodore Roosevelt, the twenty-sixth President of the United States. On its front, a reproduction of a William A. Rogers political cartoon appears of Santa Claus who is crossing the White House front lawn. On the back Roosevelt and his family stand and gaze at their Christmas tree. At the ornament's top, a red silk ribbon is attached for hanging.
