Melania Trump didn't explain the theme of White House Christmas decorations, left press confused
Melania Trump strayed from the traditional press preview of the White House Christmas decorations and shared a video of them instead.
On Monday, November 26, 2018, the First Lady of the United States graced America with a 57-second video of herself walking through the White House.
The video was shared on her Twitter page and depicted all the Christmas decorations filling the hallways and rooms of the U.S. President's official residence.

A VISUAL PRESENTATION
The 48-year-old's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, claimed that Melania skipped the press view because she decided 'to let the decorations speak for themselves.'
Several members of the media were invited to a 30-minute tour through the White House, which was fully decorated with the help of 225 volunteers.
RED, RED AND MORE RED
Over the past few days, the residence was transformed into a real holiday wonderland, with more than 20,000 feet of lights and 12,000 bows, as well as dozens of Christmas trees.
Red was the predominant color and there were even red trees along the hallways, making them look like an enchanted forest. The color choice was reportedly based on the stripes of the American flag and represents valor and bravery.
A TRIBUTE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
According to Melania, the theme honors 'the heart and spirit of the American people,' and she couldn't help but gush over how wonderful and joyful it is to decorate the White House for the Christmas season.
The First Lady also took the opportunity to wish everyone, on behalf of the Trump family, a 'very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.'

This year, the White House will be hosting 100 December open houses and receptions and around 30,000 visitors are expected to tour through its hallways during the holiday season.
Last year, instead of the red trees and bows, the White House was fully decorated with trees covered in fake snow, and the official chefs took on their yearly task of creating a perfect gingerbread house.
