A vignette representing former first families celebrating Christmas. "On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season", said the first lady. "Right? Merry Christmas. We're gonna start saying "Merry Christmas" again".

Putting her personal touch to the White House decorations this Christmas, Melania Trump unveiled the interiors that go perfectly well with the upcoming festivities.

"That stunningly attractive gold star tree by our stunningly handsome and heart of gold First Lady is a wonderful, touching tribute to our military men and women and a reminder to those of us who are being protected by their service". A boy showed her how to make them. "It says "happy holidays" all over", Donald Trump proclaimed in the past.

Jennifer Pickens, an expert on White House traditions, predicted that this year's window wreaths will become a tradition for future first ladies. A separate tree near the East Wing entrance is dedicated to families that lost loved ones in the military.

In a video the First Lady posted on Twitter, viewers can see the nativity scene, which shows Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus with a crown, as well as other stunning Christmas decorations.

Along with the moving tribute, the White House decor also offered a large gingerbread house, which Newsweek reported was "not meant for eating", according to the White House.

"Mrs. Trump's impeccable style is seen in the beautifully understated decorations and give a great nod to the First Families that came before them", Pickens said.

The White House said she personally chose every detail of the decor.

The holiday celebrating begins later Monday with a party for the volunteer decorators and will continue well into December with receptions and parties - sometimes two a day - for the next several weeks. The decorations include 71 floral wreaths, 53 Christmas trees, 12,000 decorative ornaments and many lights! Fifty-six Lego gingerbread houses, one for each state and USA territory, were nestled in the branches of the trees that decorated the State Dining Room.
