First Lady Melania Trump, who was formally a supermodel, unveiled her delightful Christmas decor at the White House on Sunday night — and this year the First Lady chose to go with a patriotic theme.
“The Spirit of America” is shining in the @WhiteHouse! I am delighted to share this beautiful exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season! pic.twitter.com/qGxxl9qBrd— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) December 2, 2019
“‘The Spirit of America’ is shining in the [White House!” Mrs. Trump captioned a video of a tour of the Christmas decor via Twitter. “I am delighted to share this beautiful exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season!”
And, indeed, the “Spirt of America” is on full display, this year. Mrs. Trump chose decorations that paid homage to lost service members and Gold Star families and gave a nod to each state and territory.
“A Gold Star Family Tree — adorned with golden stars and patriotic ribbons in honor of those who lost an immediate family member serving in the armed forces — greets visitors to the East Wing,” the New York Post reports. “The official White House Christmas tree, towering more than 18 feet tall, is decorated with handmade paper flowers representing the floral emblems of each state and territory.”
