KAILUA, Hawaii  — President Barack Obama is spending Christmas Day with his family at a rented vacation home in his native Hawaii.

White House officials have not released the details of all the first family’s Christmas Day activities. On Tuesday morning, Obama traveled from the suburban Honolulu home to a Marine Corps base for a workout.

The Obama family flew to Hawaii from Washington on Friday night. White House officials have not announced when the president is expected to return to Washington.

In the past, Obama has spent 10 to 14 days in Hawaii at Christmastime. This year, he’s expected to curtail his holiday to return to budget negotiations with lawmakers dealing with efforts to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff” of tax hikes and spending cuts scheduled to take effect next month.
