'Tis the season: Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas decor

Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas decorations – peek inside

The 2017 White House Christmas decorations, with the theme "Time-Honored Traditions", which were personally selected by first lady Melania Trump, are previewed for the press in Washington, DC on Monday, November 27, 2017.

And those opposite reactions to Trump's attempts to deck the presidential halls indicate just how divergent the narratives around the first lady have become. Another new touch are glistening wintry branches lining an East Wing hallway that leads guests to a tree decorated with the Trump family's official Christmas ornament, a gold-toned bauble featuring the presidential coat of arms surrounded by a wreath of holly. Thankfully those days are gone, and the current first family made a simple, but bold statement by wishing "Merry Christmas" in their card for the season.

The slogan aligns with Trump's campaign promise to 'say Merry Christmas again'.

This year, a White House holiday booklet states that visitors will be able to view the White House's movie theater "for the first time", The Hill reports.

Ellison goes on to suggest that Mrs. Trump's fiercely private schedule proves she doesn't want the First Lady spotlight. "I want to see Christmas". Donald Trump is President and Christmas is back!

Coffee consumption emerges as beneficial for public health
Drinking coffee beyond these amounts was not associated with harm, but the benefits were less pronounced. Coffee consumption is also associated with lower rates of type 2 diabetes, gallstones and dementia.

"Mrs. Trump's impeccable style is seen in the beautifully understated decorations and give a great nod to the First Families that came before them", Pickens said.

Among the standards are an 18-foot fir tree in the Blue Room, and a 350-pound gingerbread White House.

Visitors will be a lot: it is expected that tours of the festively decorated White house comes more than 25 thousand people.

"Ornaments are hung on a Christmas tree in the Red Room at the White House".

Consequently, it makes flawless sense that meme culture - which tends to reflect our collective social and political anxieties - has regularly commented on Melania Trump with the central theme of how well she fits in or doesn't fit into the White House environment. Fifty-six Lego gingerbread houses, one for each state and US territory, were nestled in the branches of the trees that decorated the State Dining Room.
