Christmas At The White House Is Lighting Up Social Media

Thanksgiving is over, so its time for store owners to hang twinkly lights, my neighbor to put a giant red bow on a bush outside and the first lady to present decorations out of a nightmare.

At least that’s how a bunch of Twitter users are describing Melania Trump’s 2018 holiday furnishings.

On Monday, Trump unveiled the White House’s Christmas decor, which includes a hall of crimson trees without any ornaments and a wreath made out of unnecessarily sharpened “Be Best” pencils, in honor of her anti-bullying campaign.

According to a press release from the first lady, this year’s Christmas theme is “American Treasures,” which has the White House shining “with the spirit of patriotism.”

Red for patriotism? On social media, the trees’ color was received differently. One user said: “Melania’s Christmas decorations look like they’re straight out of the Shining.”

Another added: “So Melania decorated the White House for Christmas – with blood red trees right out of The Shining: Holiday Version. #ThisIsReal”

A third person tweeted: “I give Melania credit: No other First Lady ever made the White House Christmas look so much like the Circles of Hell.”

Some thought the trees looked like the handmaids’ red outfits in dystopian series “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

At least Trump’s new decorations, which also include green trees and a National Mall made out of gingerbread, appear to be an improvement from 2017, which was less than warm and inviting with its barren white branches in a hall and a video of the first lady uncomfortably watching ballerinas.
