White House unveils Christmas decor with 'Spirit of America' theme
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, as the halls of the White House are officially decked out for the most wonderful time of the year.
On Dec. 1, First Lady Melania Trump announced that the White House had been decorated for the holiday season, with adornments inspired by “The Spirit of America,” this year's patriotic theme.
