First lady goes with classic, traditional Christmas decor

Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas decorations – peek inside

President Donald Trump's third wife has decorated the White House for the holidays, The Hill reported Monday morning.

Trump has long rejected the politically correct trend of bucking the friendly "Merry Christmas" with the generic "Happy Holidays".

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.

First Lady Melania and 11-year-old Barron Trump accepted the official Christmas tree from a Wisconsin farm and it was placed in the White House Blue Room on November 20.

"We're gonna say Merry Christmas again!" he promised last December. I hope that the tourists, who will visit the White house these days, will appear in a festive mood.

And this Christmas decor debate certainly isn't the first time that Melania's posture or fashion choices have either come under fire or elicited a grandiose amount of patronizing sympathy - two very different sentiments that have each inspired backlash in subsequent hot takes about the first lady's degree of agency over her own life.

Mrs. Trump's signature Christmas includes 71 wreaths, 53 Christmas trees, more than 18,000 lights, more than 12,000 ornaments, more than 3,100 yards (about 2800 meters) of ribbon and more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) of garland, the White House said.

She is also the first one not to move into the White House simultaneously with her husband.

A promotional video from the White House showcasing this year's decorations zoomed in on a traditional nativity set featuring a baby Jesus wearing a crown.

Another letter that the first lady shared wished service members a merry Christmas and assured them that "it's OK" if they aren't celebrating with their families because they'll still "have a great time". During other years, the cards frequently used the word "holiday."

The red room included a little Christmas tree and several decorations made up of holiday sweets and treats. The creepy hallway leads towards a decor-laden Christmas tree in another room.

Children visiting the White House this year repeatedly told Melania, wearing a white dress, that she looked like an angel.

"The White House Gingerbread House is seen in the State Dining Room".
