White House makes patriotism theme of Christmas

Melania Trump reveals White House Christmas decorations

For this year's Christmas at the White House, Mrs. Trump chose the theme "Spirit of America", a nod to traditional American customs, iconography, and history.

As always, the general public gets to experience Melania Trump's big Christmas unveiling via a video in which the famously private and taciturn first lady walks through whatever Calvin Klein commercial is playing in her mind and silently appraises random ornaments, wreaths, and origami stars hanging from the ceiling.

But he said officials are hopeful they can rescue the last girl alive, as 30 people continue searching on foot. Sunday along Tonto Creek after being halted Saturday evening, The Arizona Republic reported .

Trump wrote, referencing this year's theme.

The White House official account had this note on November 30: "Each year, the White House is decorated for Christmas by a team of dedicated volunteers!" There are standard yearly decorations, such as the creche in the East Room, a remnant from the 16th century with figurines made in Italy, this year on display for the 52nd year in a row.

An ornament spelled out "Be Best" in scrabble letters, a nod to Trump's signature platform, which has three, rather vague aims, revolving around "well-being", online safety, and raising awareness about opioid abuse.

Displayed on the iconic eagle pier table in the State Dining room, the Gingerbread House features the South Portico of the White House and landmarks from across the country, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Space Needle, Mount Rushmore, the Alamo, Gateway Arch, Liberty Bell and the Statue of Liberty, according to the White House news release. And for the family's ornament she chose a metal American flag, that looked as if it was rippling in the wind.
