BOSTON, MA (AP).- A deep pink silk dress worn by Jacqueline Kennedy for her second holiday season in the White House has gone on display at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.

The first lady wore the dress to the White House staff Christmas reception on Dec. 12, 1962. The sleeveless dress by designer Hubert de Givenchy (oo-BARE' duh zhee-VAWN'-she) is simple in front, with twists of drapery and a bow on the back.

The Marine Band and singing groups from the Air Force, Army and Navy entertained the 1,200 party guests. A 16-foot Christmas tree was decorated with toys, candy canes and gingerbread houses.

The dress went on display Wednesday. The museum is open year-round except on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.
