First Lady Melania Trump’s big reveal of the White House Christmas decorations was a huge hit among her supporters and critics alike.
Washington Examiner reports the White House decorations reflect a theme call “time-honored traditions”:
Trump chose to honor the White House’s 200-year-old tradition of celebrating the winter holidays, and this year’s theme is called “Time-Honored Traditions.” White House Christmas parties date back to 1800 when President John Adams and his wife, Abigail Adams, hosted the first soiree.
About 70 of Trump’s signature Christmas wreaths and 53 Christmas trees were on display throughout the state floor and lower level of the building. Around 18,000 feet of Christmas lights and 12,000 ornaments were placed, including gold ornaments with each of the 50 states’ names engraved on them.
According to the report, “The first lady personally selected every detail in this year’s displays” – including a particularly important ornament which honors military service members.

Per the report:
“The president, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” Melania Trump said. “As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us. I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays. On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season.”
In the East Wing, guests will find a tribute to service members and their families on the Gold Star Family Tree. Visitors are encouraged to jot down messages on tablets to loved ones who are deployed.
What a great way to remember and honor those who are deployed overseas.
