Kicking off the holiday season, President Trump and first lady Melania Trump lit the National Christmas Tree at the White House. Melania Trump stars in the official unveiling of White House decorations. The video that the First Lady tweeted on Monday shows her overseeing wreath developments, confirming that the lights are lights, marking some markings—all while wearing festive chunky knits and a couple over-the-shoulder jackets.
The White House Office of the First Lady’s press release revealed that Mrs. Trump designed this year’s holiday decorations around the theme “Time-Honored Traditions.”
There are room-by-room thematic variations, like the China Room, which “honors the holiday traditions of dining and hospitality” with a table made up for Christmas dinner with Ronald Reagan’s china.
The Library shows off President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1866 edition of A Christmas Carol to honor the tradition of telling Christmas stories. The State Dining Room is now the gingerbread room, and includes Melania’s “signature Christmas wreaths” and so on. It looks nice! Seemed like a lot of work![tps_header]Christmas at the Whitehouse[/tps_header] [tps_start_button label=”Start slideshow” style=”” class=””]
