Behind-The-Scenes White House PHOTOS: 'Tis The Holiday Season

'Tis the holiday season at the White House and Pete Souza and friends have been there to capture all of the festivities -- from pardoning the turkey to lighting Hanukkah candles to the Christmas trees around every corner to the pastry chefs' Bo-shaped cookies.

And President Obama and First Lady Michelle have certainly gotten into the end-of-year spirit, posing in front of the Blue Room tree, reading 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' and fake-singing with an a capella group.
