First lady goes with classic, traditional Christmas decor

First lady goes with classic, traditional Christmas decor

The Trump family is taking a different approach with their holiday greeting than the Obama family, who opted to use the more generic phrase "Happy Holidays" in their greetings, according to the Daily Mail.

"Revealing the presidential mansion's holiday furnishings on November 27, FLOTUS decked out the White House in a classic yuletide theme dubbed 'Time-Honored Traditions, ' which included a bevy of twinkling Christmas trees, a live ballet performance from 'The Nutcracker, ' and a 300-pound gingerbread replica of the White House", Fox News said.

As part of their traditional yet exorbitant Christmas display, the First Family hung a mistletoe plant - an eighteenth-century creation that has evolved over the years as a cue for required kissing. "I want to see Christmas". First Lady of the US Melania Trump has unveiled this year's lavish decorations in a festive video posted on Twitter.

It's fair to say there's nothing subtle about a Trump Christmas at the White House.

The theme of the year is credited to Trump, i.e. "Time-Honored Traditions", which is intended as homage for 200 years of the White House holiday customs.

Over 150 volunteers spent 1600 hours making the the White House Christmas ready for the Trumps. The theme of Time-Honored Christmas Traditions is evident throughout the decorations.

"Christmas trees are seen during a preview of holiday decorations in the East Room".

In other words, the report suggests that the precise opposite of what Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning is true.

The White House gingerbread house this year is a mini replica of the actual building.

The Blue Room contains the official White House Christmas Tree, which is decorated with gold and blue ornaments that have the seals of all states and territories in the U.S. The Red Room has a tree adorned with cookie ornaments and surrounded by tasty sweets such as peppermint candies.

White house ready for Christmas: the Christmas tree set, gingerbread house in its place, the festive preparations are completed and today the first lady hosted a tour of lovely residence for journalists and selected visitors.
