First Lady Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas Decorations

First Lady Melania Trump unveiled the White House Christmas decorations yesterday (November 26th) in a tweeted video of her walking through the displays, with the theme this year of "American Treasures." In a change, the traditional White House gingerbread house has been expanded to include the entire National Mall, with replicas of the Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument and the White House. There are also four mantelpieces that feature the skylines of New York, St. Louis, Chicago and San Francisco. The 18-foot official White House Christmas tree is in the center of the Blue Room, decorated with more than 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon embroidered with each state and territory in gold. Other decorations include two wreaths made of pencils stamped with Mrs. Trump's "Be Best" initiative, and 29 trees in the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall.
