  • Congratulations From The White House

    I think this is pretty cool: Apparently, the White House will send a note of congratulations on your baby’s birth. Send your baby’s name, address, and birth date to:

    White House Greetings Office
    Room 39
    Washington, D.C., 20500

    I’m going to do that today.


    1. You can also register/apply online at You can also request greetings for marriages, birthdays (80th and later), and anniversaries (50th and later).

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      Rick, that’s awesome info. Thank you!

      I did this a few months back. Does anyone know how long I imght expect to wait for the "congratulations" letter to arrive?

    4. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Anon – I got mine months later – enough that when it first arrived, I didn't even remember sending away for it. You could always send a second request though :)
