Patriotism is the theme of Christmas at the White House

Patriotism is the theme of Christmas at the White House”

The White House Christmas decorations are here once again, and this year, first lady Melania Trump has selected the familiar theme of patriotism. Among the twinkly lights and an array exceptionally-decorated Christmas trees, stands the White House's official tree, which Melania can be seen putting the final touches on in the video.

The first Christmas was a dazzling sparkling winter wonderland theme, the second Christmas was the bold red trees that went viral on social media.

As always, the general public gets to experience Melania Trump's big Christmas unveiling via a video in which the famously private and taciturn first lady walks through whatever Calvin Klein commercial is playing in her mind and silently appraises random ornaments, wreaths, and origami stars hanging from the ceiling.

She continued: "No matter which state they call home, many Americans share a strong set of values and deep appreciation for the traditions and history of our great nation". In the State Dining Room, at the opposite end of the hallway, the decor continues to showcase American design.

The White House's official Christmas tree for the year is a 16-year-old Douglas Fir on display in the Blue Room, according to the White House Twitter account.

The popular display also features models of landmarks from across the country, including Mount Rushmore, St. Louis' Gateway Arch, the Alamo, the Liberty Bell and the Statue of Liberty, besides the Golden Gate Bridge and the Space Needle.
