Melania Trump highlights 'Spirit of America' for holiday decoration theme

Melania Trump highlights 'Spirit of America' for holiday decoration theme

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

This year's theme is titled "The Spirit of America", and it's perfectly on-brand for the administration: chintzy, vaguely menacing, and all bathed in lights of blinding white.

First Lady Melania Trump debuted the White House Christmas decorations on Monday giving the public a peek at this year's theme. "I am delighted to share this handsome exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season!" she tweeted Monday morning, along with a video of herself, going room to room, tweaking and inspecting the details, a cupful of fake snow in one hand to sprinkle on branches of some of the 58 trees. (I believe the words "hell on earth" were even tossed around.) So the White House really had to step up the decorating game this year to please the American people.

The 2018 White House decorations were brutally criticized because they included 40 infamously creepy blood red trees. "When I travel the country, I am inspired by the hard-working people and families that I meet".

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. According to the statement, the State Dining Room, "celebrates America the handsome", with a gingerbread rendition of the South Portico of the White House and landmarks from across the country.
