Since 1997, the Office of the President has released an ornament to mark the holiday season. This year's ornament, the 20th edition, commemorates the Victory Bells. Sarah Stracener, coordinator of presidential services and communications, said on average, 3,000 ornaments are sold every year.

"There are people that have been collecting them since 1997 and they are ready and they know the timeline and they want them right away," she said.

The ornaments are available for purchase year-round through the Office of the President. Proceeds from ornament sales will fund student scholarships at Texas Tech University.
