White House makes patriotism theme of Christmas

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.

And even Larry the cat seems to be pleased with the festive make-over.

Christmas decorations are on display in the East Room of the White House, Dec. 2, 2019. "In real life they look even more handsome".

On Sunday, December 1, 2019, First Lady Melania Trump shared a video that showed the Christmas decorations.

Windsurfing, originally scheduled for Sunday, has been reset as have other outdoor events, ABS-CBN News reported. Officials warned of storm surges and prolonged heavy rain.

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.

Christmas decor is shown at the White House in this image from video released on December 1, 2019. Michelle Obama's gingerbread White House often had a replica of the family dog, B0.

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.
