Melania Trump's Blood-Red Christmas Trees at White House Set Internet on Fire

"This year's theme, "American Treasures" honors the unique heritage of America".

Christmas arrived at the White House again this year with yet another unveiling of First Lady Melania Trump's exquisite taste for classy decorations. Another was a replica of President Bill Clinton's boyhood home in Arkansas.

The White House Historical Association's official 2018 Christmas ornament hangs on a tree in the White House library on Monday

First Lady Melania Trump unveiled the White House Christmas decorations on Monday, including this year's show-stopping tree. 40 trees line the walls as one walks down the East Colonnade, and in the East Garden Room, viewers will see the First Family's Christmas card and ornament. That's because the tree needs to reach the ceiling of the Blue Room.

Four custom-made mantelpieces feature the skylines of New York, St. Louis, Chicago and San Francisco.


Thanksgiving is now but a hazy, gravy-scented memory, and you know what that means: time for the annual War on Christmas. Melania Trump's office explained that "72 handmade paper ornaments representing six regions across America hang from four 14-foot Noble fir trees".

Another said: "Beautiful, Mrs Trump!"


The Green Room focuses on America's bounty and harvest. The tree measures 18 feet tall and is dressed in over 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon embroidered in gold with each State and territory. One such person is current USA president and fervent Santa Claus-enthusiast Donald Trump, who repeatedly promised on the campaign trail to start saying Merry Christmas "again", despite staggering empirical evidence that suggests his predecessor never didn't do that.

The Grand Foyer and Cross Hall features a stunning display of 29 trees decorated with more than 14,000 red ornaments.


From their portraits on the walls of the corridor, Presidents John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan gaze down on the holiday spectacle.
