  • WE'RE BACK HERE WITH THE BIDENS.

  • CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER.

  • >> MM-HMM.

  • >> Stephen: I HAVE TO ASK, IN A NORMAL CHRISTMAS YEAR, WHAT

  • ARE THE BIDEN FAMILY CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS?

  • BECAUSE IN MY FAMILY, THE NUMBER ONE TRADITION IS PROBABLY TO

  • FIGHT OVER THE CHRISTMAS TREE ABOUT WHICH WAY THE LIGHTS GO

  • FROM THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM OR THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP, AND IT'S

  • OBVIOUSLY TOP TO THE BOTTOM AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS MADNESS.

  • >> HE'S CRAZY ABOUT HIS CHRISTMAS TREE BECAUSE, YOU

  • KNOW, THE BIDENS HAVE A TRADITION WHERE THEY MIX IVORY

  • SNOW WITH WATER.

  • HE USES MY HAND MIXER.

  • >> Stephen: IVORY SNOW LIKE THE --

  • >> THE DETERGENT.

  • >> Stephen: THE POWDER DETERGENT.

  • >> YES, BUT YOU CAN MAKE IT LOOK LIKE SNOW.

  • MY DAD USED TO DO IT.

  • IN THE BIDEN TRADITION, MY GRANDFATHER.

  • AND I SWEAR TO GOD, IT LOOKS LIKE SNOW IS FALLING ON THE

  • TREE.

  • >> I FIGHT IT EVERY YEAR.

  • AND THE TINSEL, HE'S TO PARTICULARLY.

  • >> ONE STRAND AT A TIME, YOU CAN'T THROW IT ON THERE.

  • >> Stephen: CAN'T THROW IT ON THERE.

  • >> NO, NO, NO!

  • MY DAD, LOOK -- >> Stephen: YOU TAKE IT OFF AT

  • THE END OF THE YEAR, IRON IT AND PUT IT IN THE BOX?

  • >> NO, WE GET RID OF IT BUT YOU CAN'T THROW IT ON.

  • >> Stephen: THE FAVORITE THING FOR THE CHILDREN TO DO IS THROW

  • GIANT -- WE THREW CLUMPS AT THE CHRISTMAS TREE.

  • >> NO, WE HAVE ELFDOM, JUNIOR ELFS.

  • YOU HAVE TO PUT IT ON ONE STRAND AT A TIME.

  • I GET TO BED AT 3:00 IN THE MORNING BECAUSE SANTA CLAUS PUTS

  • THE SNOW ON.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW HE'S BEEN THERE.

  • >> EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE GROWN CHILDREN AND WE HAVE A

  • TRADITION.

  • >> Stephen: AND YOU MEET SANTA WHEN HE DOES IT?

  • >> THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

  • THE TRADITION IS BASED ON YOUNGEST TO OLDEST INCLUDING THE

  • GROWN CHILDREN, YOU COME DOWN THE STAIRS --

  • >> Stephen: NO OTHER WAY, YOUNGEST TO OLDEST.

  • >> YOU GOT IT.

  • THAT'S THE WAY TO DO IT.

  • WE HAVE 26 PEOPLE FOR DINNER EVERY CHRISTMAS EVE FOR THE LAST

  • 20 YEARS, OUR FAMILY, AND THEN WE HAVE -- THIS YEAR IT'S GOING

  • TO BE JILL AND ME AND MAYBE OUR DAUGHTER AND OUR SON-IN-LAW.

  • >> Stephen: WHEN YOU ARE FIRST LADY YOU GET TO MAKE THE CALLS

  • ON THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS SO YOU CAN BAN IVORY SNOW ON THE

  • TREES FOR AT LEAST FOUR YEARS.

  • >> THERE YOU GO.

  • I'M NOT DOING ALL THOSE TREES.

  • I JUST DO SANTA'S TREE, JUST THE ONE.

  • A 16'TREE IN OUR HALLWAY.

  • WE HAVE TWO TREES.

  • >> Stephen: YOU WILL HAVE A LOT OF TREES NEXT YEAR, SIR.

  • >> THAT'S RIGHT.

  • >> Stephen: ABOUT NEXT YEAR -- YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: -- DO YOU THINK THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, WHEN YOU'RE

  • BOTH IN THE WHITE HOUSE, WE WILL HAVE WHAT YOU COULD CALL A

  • NORMAL CHRISTMAS?

  • WILL THE COUNTRY BE BACK TO NORMAL?

  • >> I BELIEVE WE'LL BE AWFULLY CLOSE TO THAT IF NOT THERE.

  • I DO.

  • THE COMBINATION, IN THE FIRST 100 DAYS, I'M GOING TO ASK

  • EVERYBODY TO WEAR A MASK FOR 100 DAYS AND WHERE I CAN DICTATE

  • THAT ON FEDERAL PROPERTY, I HAVE BEEN ON FOR 45 GOVERNORS ASKING

  • THEM TO THINK ABOUT IT, JUST 100 DAYS.

  • WE'RE GOING TO GET THE 100 MILLION VACCINATIONS OUT

  • THERE, AND WE'RE GOING TO GET TO THE PLACE WHERE WE CAN OPEN

  • SCHOOLS, AND THERE'S THINGS WE CAN DO, AND I THINK WE CAN

  • REALLY -- IT'S NOT GOING TO BE QUICK, BUT I THINK, BY NEXT

  • CHRISTMAS, WE WILL BE CLOSE TO NORMAL.

  • >> YEP.

  • BE FIRST LADY, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO SIT DOWN

  • WITH ME.
