According to a long tradition, she was received by the first lady of the United States.
A Christmas tree was delivered to the White House on Monday afternoon, which, following a long tradition, was received by US first lady Melania Trump.
This year, the presidential residence will be decorated with a 5.6-meter-high fir tree provided by Dan and Bryan Trees of West Virginia.
To the sound of Christmas tunes played by a military band, the tree was taken to the White House’s North porch in a horse-drawn cart. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the first lady came out on the porch wearing a mask.
A special association has been responsible for choosing a Christmas tree for the White House since 1966.
The Christmas tree delivery marks the start of the annual White House festivities. This week, another holiday custom will be performed: a symbolic pardon of Turkey by the President.
