Spouses trump lit up the main Christmas tree of the country

Posted Декабря 02, 2017

Music played as many onlookers watched First Lady Melania Trump press the button that would jump start the holiday lights on the festive tree.

Based on how upset Donald Trump got when it was revealed just how sparsely attended his presidential inauguration was compared to that of Barack Obama, he'll probably be ultra-angry when he discovers these tweets from Thursday.

Social media is mocking a photo display of White House holiday decorations that some say look rather haunting.

Johnson works in the Pineville-Bell County Public Library.

This year's theme is "Time-Honored Traditions". Since 1966, the National Christmas Tree Association has been holding a competition for the official White House Blue Room tree. He presided over the annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree during which he wished his countrymen and people across the world a very merry Christmas.

Former US President Ulysses S. Grant signed legislation marking Christmas as a national holiday. According to trump, the phrase "Happy holidays" negates the Christian essence of Christmas.

The 350-pound (160-kilogram) gingerbread house in the State Dining Room offers a view of the White House from the South Lawn, with wreaths on every window and a USA flag flying from its sugary rooftop.

Among the Christmas, standards are an 18-by-6-foot (5.5-by-1.8-meter) Balsam fir from Wisconsin in the traditional spot in the Blue Room, decorated with ornaments bearing the seals of every state and USA territory. The White House said Mrs Trump chose every detail of the decor and did a final check late Sunday after returning from the family's Thanksgiving at their estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

One Twitter user pointed out that the dimly lit hallway lined with dead branches painted white looks like the flawless spot to tape a "Stranger Things" scene.
