Christmas Alive at White House! Watch As Melania Trump Welcomes Children And Unveils New White House Christmas Decorations (Videos)

First lady Melania Trump has opted for a more traditional decor for her family’s first Christmas in the White House, adding a few new touches to the standards.

New this year are wreaths hanging from the exterior of every window. Another new touch are glistening wintry branches lining an East Wing hallway that leads guests to a tree decorated with the Trump family’s official Christmas ornament, a gold-toned bauble featuring the presidential coat of arms surrounded by a wreath of holly.

The family Christmas card is framed and on display. “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,” says the card signed by U.S. President Donald Trump, the first lady and Barron, their 11-year-old son.

The White House said she personally chose every detail of the decor. She did a final check late Sunday after returning from the family’s Thanksgiving at their home in Palm Beach, Florida.

The holiday celebrating begins later Monday with a party for the volunteer decorators and will continue well into December with receptions and parties just about every day — sometimes two a day — for the next several weeks. More than 25,000 visitors are expected to tour the White House for the holidays and the kitchen is ready: a total of 31,000 cookies have been baked, including 15,000 sugar cookies.

She also welcomed room after room of crafting children to a White House fully adorned on Monday morning with trimmings of the Christmas season.
As she descended a staircase to the front entryway of the White House, the first lady was greeted with a performance from several Vivid Ballet Company dancers performing to live music from The Nutcracker. The dancers were surrounded by snowy trees that flocked the front entry and hall of the White House:

After watching the dancers perform from the entry and into the hall, Mrs. Trump walked down to the State Dining Room, where three tables of children were decorating small wreaths. One young girl handed her wreath to the first lady, who held it up and remarked, “So beautiful”:

From Breitbart:
She spent time with the children in each White House room she visited, admiring their crafts and engaging with them. They discussed their creations, their Christmas plans, their activities at the White House that day, and they traded a variety of questions:


Eagerly anticipating the first lady in the East Room, nine children shuffled around one large table, straightening their evergreen garlands. As Mrs. Trump entered the room, some of the children began hugging her, which sparked others to run from the other side of the table to join in one big hug. She came around and began helping them with the red bows and gold Christmas balls they were affixing to the fresh garlands. They visited for a while before she moved to the next room:

From the East Room, the first lady moved to the Green Room, where children sat at a small table cutting out silhouettes for a craft. One little girl asked her what her favorite animal is, and she responded that it is a lion:

The Red Room was adored with sweet candy treats. Four children sat creating gumdrop trees at a small round table when the first lady entered and joined in. She remarked how yummy the sweets looked and asked them how old they were. The children responded in unison that they were nine years old and told Mrs. Trump that they had never been to the White House before:

Melania is so beautiful, and she has a beautiful soul, demonstrating care and compassion for others. She reminds me of Princess Diana. We are so blessed to have her for our first lady. When I think of her predecessor….in comparison….there are no words.

Have so much respect and admiration for this kind and beautiful lady! Finally class is back in the White House!
