Christmas In July At The White House: Melania Trump Already Begins Planning For Christmas

July 27, 2018

Last December was the first Christmas both President Trump and First Lady Melania got to celebrate together at the White House.

Per Christmas tradition, it's the first lady's responsibility to decorate the White House and last year she opted for a more traditional theme: "Time-Honored Traditions," which paid respect to 200 years of Christmas traditions in the White House.

“The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” the First Lady said in a statement last year.

“As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us. I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays," Melania shared.

Melania went all out last year, and most people gave her great reviews. She filled the White House with 53 trees which were covered with over 12,000 ornaments and 18,000 lights.

Among the gorgeous trees, there was a Balsam fir that stood 19 1/2-foot tall in the Blue Room. The fir was covered with special ornaments that revealed the seals of all 50 states and other ornaments displaying the U.S. territories.

While many people enjoy Christmas in July sales or scoff at retailers filling multiple aisles with Christmas decor, the first lady is setting up shop as well.

"Planning is underway for this year’s #Christmas at the @WhiteHouse!" Melania reveals. "There is still a lot of work to be done, but I hope everyone will enjoy our final holiday vision for the People’s House."
