The First Lady has officially unveiled the Christmas decorations on display at the White House for the holiday season. Since then, she’s received nothing but praise for her gorgeous taste from conservatives who adore the decor. As for the military families of this country, they were left gasping when they saw what she had purposefully placed in one of the Christmas trees.
The holiday decorations are officially on display, gorgeously dressing up the White House for the Christmas season. Greens, blues, reds, and a forest of winter white shines brightly in the rooms at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Thankfully, it all became a reality with the help of more than 150 volunteers from 29 different states who spent many, many hours setting it all up. Of course, First Lady Melania Trump was in charge of every detail and has been tirelessly working to make it perfect – and she has succeeded.
Every wing of the White House has a different color scheme, with each paying tribute to something. However, it’s the decorations in the East Wing that have caught the attention of members of the military and their families after they learned what Melania had purposely hidden in the tree.
In the room is a special Christmas tree that has been labeled the “Gold Star Family Tree.” According to Newsweek, the tree itself honors those who have served in the military. According to The Hill, “As White House guests enter the East Wing, they see the Gold Star Family Tree, dedicated to military servicemen and women. As in years past, alongside the tree are tablets to send digital holiday messages to troops abroad.”
It’s no secret that President Trump and Melania have a special place in their hearts for the members of the military and their families. Clearly, they’re not afraid to show how special they are, even down to their simple Christmas decorations. Melania opted to put this special tree up to honor both the current and past military heroes who are both at home and abroad.
Along with her beautiful set-up at the White House, Melania also made a small announcement. “The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” she said. “As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us. I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays. On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season.”
This is just another instance where President Trump and Melania have made our military members a priority, ensuring they are not forgotten during the holidays when it’s easy to get distracted by our own selfish wants and desires. The Trumps have chosen to continue a tradition where people can come and honor our military in a special way during this special season. In addition to the “Gold Star Family Tree,” they’re sending out the notes they receive to the troops who deserve to get a little bit of Christmas cheer from home.
The men and women who serve in our military know what it’s like to be unappreciated. However, with the Trumps leading our nation, things are undoubtedly looking up for them. As President Trump vowed to “make America great again,” he knows who will help make that a reality – our heroes in the military. It’s time to spread that message far and wide, to further prove how great our leader and his wife are because they know where to give respect when it’s due.
