Holiday Ornaments

Texas House Christmas Tree

Each year, House Members are invited to select a constituent to imagine and create a visual representation of what makes their Texas House District special. For the last five Christmas seasons, their creative works – in the form of ornaments – decorate the majestic 22-foot, Texas-grown Christmas tree that stands in the House Chamber of the Texas Capitol during the holiday season.

The tree will be on display from December 5, 2014, through January 2, 2015, and showcase the distinct nature of every House district to the thousands of Capitol visitors who enjoy the ornaments each year. All ornaments are photographed and descriptions of their individual significance are compiled into an album so that visitors to the House Chamber and House website can enjoy each ornament’s unique story.
