It's the breakout year for 360-degree videos and now the White House have used the technology for an exclusive sneak peek into their holiday makeover...

The White House has uploaded a video of its interior on YouTube, complete with festive decorations. Take an inside look at the hallways, the rooms and the decorations du jour that the White House is bedecked in. The running commentary also offers viewers more information and an insight into the history of each room and by extension, little snippets of American history.

From the red room to the library and even the room dedicated to the first ladies of the nation, the tour showcases each individual area's unique festive decoration and the thought processes behind the colours and materials used. There is even a room dedicated to the current first family's two dogs, Bo and Sunny.

Viewers can also opt to use 3D glasses to enjoy a more immersive experience.
