First Lady of the U.S, Melania Trump is getting into the Christmas spirit. This is how she decorated the White House:
This Christmas marks the first for the Trump family as residents in the White House, and to celebrate, Melania Trump decided to decorate it appropriately.
This year’s theme, Time-Honored Traditions was designed by First Lady Melania, to pay respect to 200 years of holiday traditions at the White House.
The decorations include 71 wreaths, 53 Christmas trees, 12 000 ornaments and 2800 meters of ribbon.
There’s even a gingerbread house that resembles the White House and weighs about 160kg.

Apparently, the White House is expecting over 25 000 visitors during the holiday season. According to the White House’s press office, visitors will be taken on a tour where they will see the China Room, among other things, which honors the holiday traditions of dining and hospitality.
The room is set up for a family Christmas dinner, with the table displaying the china from President Ronald Reagan.
Visitors will also see the Library, which features President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1866 edition of “A Christmas Carol,” as they recall the time-honored custom of reading Christmas stories to loved ones.
Cookies and other delights have been prepared for visitors to enjoy while walking about the premises.

It was actually Jacqueline Kennedy who started to celebrate the festive season with a specific theme in mind in 1961. This tradition has crossed over for many years. The first theme was the Nutcracker.
Some internet users actually said Melania’s decorations are a bit eerie, especially after a video captured by Hill reporter, Judy Kurtz surfaced on Twitter.
