White House Pastry Chefs Make National Mall in Gingerbread 26 November 2018

The White House Historical Association's official 2018 Christmas ornament hangs on a tree in the White House library on Monday

First Lady Melania Trump Reveals Christmas 2018 at the White House

Fitting this year's decor theme "American Treasures", the one-minute video shows Trump clad in all-black strolling through an ominous sea of pointed, blood-red cone-shaped trees, touching various ornaments displaying miniature US landmarks, and looking at blue-and-gold trees.

First lady Melania Trump unveiled the 2018 White House holiday decor on Monday.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the White House.

Also on display are the customary gingerbread house and the traditional White House tree, which stands at 18 feet (5.5 meters) tall. The Fraser fir from North Carolina is decorated with more than 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon embroidered in gold with each state and territory.

In order to help prove to the haters and losers just how much this White House is defiantly unafraid to throw around the banished "C-word" this time of year, Melania Trump tweeted out a video advertising the general concept of Christmas at the White House. Visitors are encouraged to use digital tablets to write messages to those who are now serving.

Still, Americans take great pride in the White House.

At 18 feet tall the official White House Christmas tree is dressed in over 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon embroidered in gold with the name of each state and territory and is on display in the Blue Room

Two blue and gold trees are on display in the Vermeil Room.

While some of the decorations are par for the course - snowy white lights and well ornamented trees, the video also displays an alarming hallway full of BLOOD RED TREES.

In the Red Room, the mantle was decorated with a garland complete with white ornaments adorned with the "Be Best" logo - near a wreath constructed of "Be Best" pencils.

It's that most wonderful time of the year when the kind of people who rail against the scourge of political correctness and oversensitivity get steaming mad if someone doesn't use their favorite holiday greeting.

Each showcases a skyline from a different American city: New York, St. Louis, Chicago, and San Francisco. The State Dining Room celebrates national symbols, including "the bald eagle, the rose, and the oak tree".
