Jill Biden decorates White House lawn for Valentine’s Day

February 15, 2022

First Lady Jill Biden is at it again with Valentine’s Day decorations. This year, she’s celebrating with life-size displays of faith, hope, and love—and some animal appreciation, as well, reports NBC’s Today show.

Overnight, large, hand-painted, wooden artwork in the shape of the Biden’s new puppy, Commander, and new cat, Willow, appeared on the North Lawn of the White House.

There is also a jumbo heart inscribed with 1 Corinthians 13:13: “Three things will last forever, faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”

NBC News White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell shared photos of the display on Twitter.

But the love doesn’t stop there. There is also a Valentine’s Day display inside the East Wing of the White House. FLOTUS organized a display of 42 “heart-work” created by the second-grade classes of the Washington, DC 2021 Teacher of the Year, Mr. Alejandro Diasgranados, of Aiton Elementary School.

Twenty of those students were invited to visit the White House on Monday, February 14, and tour the State Floor.

“The First Lady is known for her sense of humor, love of surprises, and celebrating traditions, especially with her family, Valentine’s Day has always been one of her favorite holidays,” her office said in a statement to NBC News at the time.

“Sending messages of healing, unity, hope, and compassion, this is her Valentine to the country.”
