It’s no secret that many benefits come with being President of the United States and being part of the First Family. However, there’s corresponding responsibility that comes with these perks. Being the leader of the US doesn’t necessarily mean that they can do whatever they want. Several rules are required to be followed or else severe consequences may follow. In some cases, these rules are daily activities that are commonly taken for granted by most of us. Here are some of the most unexpected traditions and rules that the First Family needs to respect while living in the White House.
No Opening the Windows
There’s a lot of restrictions when it comes to residing in the US’s most historical and well-known White House. Some of these restrictions might seem odd to the public, including that no windows can be opened, which Michelle Obama mentioned missing.
The former First Lady, Michelle Obama, has gone on to state that she missed being able to open a window and let some fresh air in during her time in the White House. She even joked in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres about spending some time by a window when she moves out of the White House.
