First lady unveils White House 2018 Christmas decorations

April FrancisNov 27, 2018

This year's Christmas theme is called "American Treasures" and honors the "unique heritage of America" according to the White House.

First lady Melania Trump unveiled the 2018 White House holiday decor on Monday. A massive gingerbread white house that features a mini-Christmas wreath in every window was baked with 300 pounds of dough.

Topiary trees line the East colonnade during the 2018 Christmas Press Preview at the White House in Washington, Nov. 26, 2018.

In the East Wing stands the Gold Star Family tree which honors the troops and families who have sacrificed in the name of freedom.

The protests began at the end of a year ago after higher fuel taxes were introduced. He said: "I think [the taxes] are not about the environment - it's for the money".

The Trump family Christmas card and ornament are in the East Garden Room, while the White House Historical Association's 2018 ornament honoring President Truman is in the library. There are also 72 handmade paper ornaments representing six of the country's regions hanging from four 14-foot Noble fir trees.

It comes after Melania and Donald welcomed the Blue Room Christmas tree last week.

"As one makes their way through the Green Room, Americans are reminded of the country's bounty and harvest. For the 51st year, the White House Crèche will also be on display". The Red Room is focused on children and ways they can excel.

Despite Melania's fine tastes, leftist haters across the Twitterverse immediately blasted her vision as cold, remote, and even darkly twisted, likening the First Lady to some sort of frigid ice queen.

The Grand Foyer and Cross Hall features a stunning display of 29 trees decorated with more than 14,000 red ornaments. The first lady's office explained, "The choice of red is an extension of the pales, or stripes, found in the presidential seal designed by our Founding Fathers. It's a symbol of valour and bravery", the statement said.
