As President Obama cracked some lighthearted jokes and injected some holiday cheer into the ceremony, Malia, 14, and Sasha, 16, played the role of angst-ridden teens, standing behind their father with arms crossed and sullen stares on their faces.


“Want to pet him?” Obama asked his daughters during the time-honoured ritual.

“Nah,” Malia replied.


Malia, 16, was recently named by Time magazine as one of its 25 most influential teens of 2014.

Growing up is hard for everyone.
