Festive images show how Melania Trump decorated the White House for Christmas

The video shows Melania opening a White House Advent calendar, straightening a ring of roses around the fireplace and strolling through the brightly lit hallways of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

This year's theme is titled "The Spirit of America", and it's perfectly on-brand for the administration: chintzy, vaguely menacing, and all bathed in lights of blinding white.

First Lady Melania Trump and her decorators have transformed the White House into an extremely festive - and extremely white - tribute to the holiday season, as new video posted on her official Twitter account shows. "I am delighted to share this handsome exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season", Trump tweeted.

"This Christmas season I want to honor those who have shaped our country and made it the place we are proud to call home, and I am excited to announce our White House holiday theme, "The Spirit of America", said the first lady in a statement.

The official White House Christmas tree is decorated in the Blue Room and measures more than 18 feet tall.


The White House has been turned into a winter wonderland for Christmas 2019. According to the statement, the State Dining Room, "celebrates America the handsome", with a gingerbread rendition of the South Portico of the White House and landmarks from across the country.

East Room decorations are inspired by the USA flag and feature gilded eagle Christmas tree toppers, mirrored stars and red and blue ribbons.

Compared to those choices, critics may have a tough time taking issue with this year's relatively traditional decoration decisions.
