The 2018 theme of the White House holiday decorations is "American Treasures, ' and features patriotic displays highlighting the country's "unique heritage.' The White House expects to host 100 open houses and more than 30,000 guests who will tour the topiary trees, architectural models of major USA cities, the Gold Star family tree and national monuments in gingerbread".
This decision first came about after Trump, 72, made it clear past year that there would be no "happy holidays", which is more generic and politically correct statement, on any of his family's festive cards. "This home, held in trust for all Americans, displays the many splendors found across our great Nation", the White House Office of the First Lady describes.
White House decorators made a holiday decoration out of sharpened pencils emblazoned with the slogan.
First Lady Melania Trump, 48, unveiled the 2018 White House Christmas Decorations on November 26, per E! "Upon entering the library, people will see four trees - one in each corner - that display the White House Historical Association's 2018 ornament honoring President Harry S.Truman". The room's chandelier is removed every year to make room for the tree. The Fraser fir from North Carolina is decorated with more than 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon embroidered in gold with each state and territory.

What do you think of this year's White House Christmas display?
But social media has savaged one element in particular - the dozens of blood-red Christmas trees which line a White House hallway.
Each showcases a skyline from a different American city: New York, St. Louis, Chicago, and San Francisco. It includes replicas of the Capitol, the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, the Washington Monument and the White House, complete with tiny green wreaths with red ribbons on each window. They are decorated with 14,000 red ornaments that are meant to symbolize valor and bravery.
The Grand Foyer and Cross Hall has 29 trees with more than 14,000 red ornaments and plenty of twinkling lights.
