The official White House Christmas tree is in the Blue Room.
Things may be different in the White House this year, but the annual holiday theme is "Time-Honored Traditions".
The profile goes on to recount her unusual approach to her new role as first lady, including a relatively sparse staff and her decision to remain in NY with son Barron for the first five months of her husband's presidency. Melania Trump's press office released a statement saying the theme intends to pay "respect to 200 years of holiday traditions at the White House". The White House insisted that she wanted to stay in NY until June so that her son Barron, 11, could finish his school year in NY. "On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season".
"She seriously looks like an angel", another child exclaimed when they saw Trump during the Christmas event.
Melania Trump never wanted to be First Lady, report says
In the White House's East Wing, visitors can enjoy a Gold Star Family Tree, which honors those who have served in the military. "Visitors are encouraged to write a message to their loved ones who are on duty or overseas on the digital tablets provided".
"Here, for the first time, visitors can view the space where first families father to watch their favorite films", a holiday booklet from the White House says of the viewing space, which is decked out in red velvet. Ivana Trump, Donald's first wife, said on Saturday's The Ray D'Arcy Show that Melania had gone "bananas" when Ivana boasted in various recent interviews that she was Trump's first lady.
The decor will be seen by thousands of visitors on public tours as well as at more than 100 open houses and receptions. The White House's Nativity scene will also be on display, marking the 50 anniversary of its appearance. Melania needs to add one more scene this year. "A scene of HELL for all atheists", one Mad World News reader commented on the site's Facebook page.
Ivana added: "I was married to Donald, I have three kids with him, and I have no idea why she resents it. Leave it at that". They inly care about the people that want to kill us. "So suck it up buttercups just like we had to for 8 years".
