Melania Trump promotes campaign with White House Christmas decorations

First Lady Melania Trump Reveals Christmas 2018 at the White House

The East Wing features a Gold Star Family Tree - decorated by Gold Star families - which honors the troops and families who have fought for the country's freedom.

"This is a joyous time of year when we decorate the White House for the Christmas Season", the First Lady said in a statement regarding her decorations. From the rules about how tall the tree must be to how it's selected, here are some fun facts about the White House Christmas tree and other holiday decorations at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The Blue Room highlights each state and territory. The Christmas Tree lighting will be in the evening on Wednesday, November 28. Visitors are encouraged to use digital tablets to write messages to those who are now serving. A massive gingerbread white house that features a mini-Christmas wreath in every window was baked with 300 pounds of dough. Melania Trump's office explained that "72 handmade paper ornaments representing six regions across America hang from four 14-foot Noble fir trees". They are decorated with 14,000 red ornaments that are meant to symbolize valor and bravery.

It's that most wonderful time of the year when the kind of people who rail against the scourge of political correctness and oversensitivity get steaming mad if someone doesn't use their favorite holiday greeting.

Another tree stands in the Green Room, where a variety of fruits, vegetables and grains were used to decorate the tree, while the official 18-foot White House Christmas tree stands in the Blue Room, decorated with more than 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon, embroidered in gold with each USA state and territory.
