Melania Trump Debuts ‘Spirit of America’ Christmas Decorations

Melania Trump reveals White House Christmas decorations

The footage begins with Melania opening one of the doors of a giant advent calendar crafted in the shape of the White House.

A tree dedicated to Gold Star families that lost an immediate relative during military service stands at the beginning of the hallway while a tree decorated with the Trump family ornament - an American flag this year - glistens at the end of the colonnade.

In a tradition dating back to Jackie Kennedy, Melania Trump unveiled her theme for the White House Christmas decorations at the weekend, announcing on Instagram and Twitter that she'd been inspired by "The Spirit of America". I am delighted to share this attractive exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty.

American patriotism, which became socially acceptable again in late 2016, is evident throughout the Christmas decor at the White House, where traditional holiday green mingles with formidable red, white, and blue, and a gingerbread White House is flanked by models of famed American landmarks including Mount Rushmore, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty.

UVA defeats Virginia Tech 39-30; snaps 15 year streak
While Virginia Tech's coaching situation has had more continuity, the Hokies also made a coaching change after the 2015 season. Virginia looked like several defenders stumbled trying to chase down the downed Hooker as he made his way through the field.

This isn't the only mini White House on display, as towards the end of the video Melania adjusts tiny festive wreaths on a gingerbread White House, while bakers look on.

It also shows her adjusting a few ornaments on the Christmas trees, including a collection of Scrabble letters that spell out "Be Best", her anti-bullying campaign. There was no sign of the red cranberry trees that drew so much criticism a year ago.

Decorations in the public areas of the White House include 58 Christmas trees, more than 2,500 strands of light, more than 800 feet (244 meters) of garland and more than 15,000 bows.

President Trump did not mention the White House makeover in an early-morning Twitter tirade Monday, before he departed for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in the United Kingdom.
