This year’s holiday decorations are dedicated to various manifestations of the country’s greatness.
First lady Melania Trump decorated the White House for Christmas. This year, the declared theme of jewelry is “America the Beautiful.” According to Mrs. Trump, the holiday decorations reflect the greatness of the country.
The Christmas tree in the Blue Room, delivered from West Virginia, is decorated with crafts from schoolchildren from all over the country. As part of a National Park service project, children were asked to make decorations that reflect their states’ finest qualities.
During this special time of the year, I am delighted to share “America the Beautiful” and pay tribute to the majesty of our great Nation. Together, we celebrate this land we are all proud to call home. #WHChristmas pic.twitter.com/fdZmB3rdXL

By tradition, a gingerbread White House weighing more than 181 kg was made for the holiday. It included for the first time the Rose Garden that Mrs. Trump reconstructed, as well as the Garden of the first ladies.
This is the last Christmas in the White House for the Trump couple, although the President insists that he won the election.
Volunteers from all over the country helped decorate the White House for the holidays. For this purpose, 62 Christmas trees, 106 Christmas wreaths, more than 366 meters of garlands, more than 3,200 lanterns, and 17,000 bows were used. On Monday, the White House gave a tour to reporters, followed by a reception for volunteers.
“Over the past four years, I have had the privilege of visiting some of our country’s most beautiful landmarks and meeting some of America’s most compassionate and Patriotic citizens,” the first lady said in a written statement. “All Americans, from coast to coast, are united a love of our traditions, values, and history, which have served as a source of inspiration for this year’s holiday decor.”
