Yesterday, First Lady Melania Trump unveiled the 2018 Christmas decorations at the White House. This year’s theme, fittingly called “American Treasures,” brings a spirit of patriotism to the holiday by honoring the unique heritage of our Nation.
“This is a joyous time of year when we decorate the White House for the Christmas Season,” the First Lady said. “Thank you to the many volunteers and staff who worked hard to decorate the halls of the People’s House in Christmas cheer. On behalf of my family, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
The White House will host more than 100 open houses, many receptions, and more than 30,000 people on public tours this holiday season.
This morning, the First Lady joined Second Lady Karen Pence to kick off the “season of giving” by volunteering their time at the American Red Cross in Washington, D.C. Joined by spouses of both Cabinet officials and military service members, they assembled care packages for American troops currently stationed abroad.
Watch the First Lady unveil the 2018 White House Christmas decorations.
