Melania Trump reveals White House Christmas decorations

Melania Trump has debuted the White House Christmas trees on social media

The tradition of US President's wife decorating the White House for Christmas dates back to First Lady Lou Henry Hoover, who put up the the first official White House Christmas tree in 1929 - and Melania has perpetuated this tradition with a somewhat mixed reception over the years.

The traditional gingerbread White House shares its stage with American landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and the Golden Gate Bridge.

"'The Spirit of America' #ChristmasWhiteHouse2019", Trump captioned an image of the Christmas preparations posted this morning to Instagram.

Melania Trump has dazzled Americans every year with the White House Christmas decorations, making The East Colonnade a must-have photo for visitors for the Christmas season.


The East Colonnade of the White House is lined with double rows of see-through panels etched with more than 60 examples of American design, innovation and architecture, ranging from the Woolworth Building in New York City to the Space Needle in Seattle. Trump wrote, referencing this year's theme. In the State Dining Room, at the opposite end of the hallway, the decor continues to showcase American design.

Additionally, Trump kept the tradition of a giant White House replica - made from 200 pounds of gingerbread, with layers and layers of white icing and banisters of the South Portico and Truman Balcony made from raw spaghetti coated black with icing.

The almost minute long video featured Melania Trump putting the finishing touches on several trees and walking through the White House admiring the decorations.
