Jill Biden Set To Unveil White House Holiday Decoration Theme

The tradition is bringing back memories, or nightmares, of Melania Trump's red Christmas trees in 2018.

First lady Jill Biden will unveil the White House holiday decorations and theme on Monday — and Twitter users are hopeful they won’t be anything like the grim red Christmas trees for which Melania Trump was criticized during Donald Trump’s tenure.

Biden will be joined by a National Guard family — Capt. Maryanne V. Harrell and her husband, Levi, and their children — to honor the Guard’s work during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a statement from Biden’s office.

The first lady will also host Elliana’s second-grade class from Malcolm Elementary School in Waldorf, Maryland, for the event, and plans to thank the 100 volunteers who helped with the decorations.

Last Monday, Biden was on the scene when the White House Christmas tree — an 18.5-foot Fraser fir from North Carolina — was set up in the Blue Room.

Though Melania Trump went for a traditional “America the Beautiful” holiday look during her last year in the White House, it’s hard for many to shake the memory of her odd red Christmas trees in 2018.

And while the former president has often accused Democrats of trying to cancel Christmas, it was his own wife who notoriously said in a 2018 phone call: “Who gives a fuck about Christmas stuff?”
