First Lady Melania Trump Reveals Christmas 2018 at the White House

On Monday, First Lady Melania Trump gave the world a first look at the White House's 2018 holiday decor.

"However, it will be a bit breezy with gusts in the range of 10-20 miles per hour to the northwest", AccuWeather Meteorologist Rob Richards said.

One of the many duties of the First Lady is to usher in a design for the Christmas décor at the White House.

The festive ceremony dates back to 1923 during Calvin Coolidge's presidency.

Every state is represented with an ornament from sponsoring organizations.

The Grand Foyer and Cross Hall has 29 trees with more than 14,000 red ornaments and plenty of twinkling lights.

Even as their lead disappeared and their shots (and free throws) stopped falling in a wild atmosphere, the Bulldogs did not panic. Gonzaga then committed a shot-clock violation on the other end, giving the ball back to the Illini with 30.5 seconds remaining.

Choosing the ideal Christmas tree is hard no matter where you live, but when your home is the White House, there are some specific rules you need to follow.

After the FLOTUS shared a minute-long video on Monday to show off the 2018 presidential "American Treasure" themed holiday decorations, Twitter users couldn't help but critique the, uh, unique ways the administration chose to deck the halls. "On behalf of my family, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".

In the East Wing, a time-honored tradition returns to honor military families.

It comes after Melania and Donald welcomed the Blue Room Christmas tree last week. Decorated by Gold Star families, this tree honors all our troops and families who have sacrificed greatly to protect our freedoms. The tree is decorated with patriotic ribbon and invites guests to write digital messages to loved ones on duty and overseas.

Each showcases a skyline from a different American city: New York, St. Louis, Chicago, and San Francisco.

The 18-foot official White House Christmas tree stands tall in the center of the Blue Room. "For the 51st year, the White House Crèche will also be on display".
