Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas decorations - peek inside

Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas decorations - peek inside

Last year, for the Obamas' final year in the White House, military families were invited to the White House for the big reveal of the decorations, TIME reported. When former social secretaries gave a luncheon to welcome Ms. Rogers earlier this year, one participant said, she surprised them by suggesting the Obamas were planning a "non-religious Christmas" - hardly a surprising idea for an administration making a special effort to reach out to other faiths.

While she visited with the group of kids, Trump listened to some of them read their holiday greetings, and on Tuesday, she shared on Twitter what one of the letters said.

'If all you have to do is complain about the @White House having mistletoe as part of its Christmas decorations, you really, really need to get a life.

After Melania Trump unveiled holiday decor at the White House Monday, people were quick to point out a particular decoration that could have been done away with. Melania Trump's press office released a statement saying the theme intends to pay "respect to 200 years of holiday traditions at the White House".

"Christmas trees are seen during a preview of holiday decorations in the East Room".

And of course, there were those infamous "religion-free" holiday cards - featuring the family dogs without the word "Christmas".

Ben Stokes On His Way To New Zealand
England all-rounder Ben Stokes has reportedly flown to New Zealand, not Australia where his nation are now playing in the Ashes . The ECB statement came after a picture was posted on Twitter which it was claimed showed Stokes at Heathrow Airport.

Melania notably did not move into the White House immediately following her husband's inauguration, instead staying at Trump Tower in New York City through the summer, at a cost of millions of dollars to American taxpayers.

The family Christmas card is framed and on display, along with cards from past presidents.

Among the new touches this year: On the outside, wreaths topped with red bows adorn every White House window.

The Grand Foyer and Cross Hall were decorated with multiple Christmas trees covered in crystal ornaments and artificial snow inspired by the "Nutcracker Suite" theme of the 1961 White House holiday decorations.

"Melania Trump makes Christmas decorations with children in the State Dining Room". Home tree Home is located in the Blue room: it is decorated with gold and blue ribbons with ornaments of all US States.
