Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas decorations - peek inside

Donald Trump is during the CNN presidential debate in Las Vegas on Dec. 15 2015

The star ornaments adorning the nearby tree pay tribute to the country's Gold Star families and visitors are encouraged to send holiday messages to military members stationed overseas via special electronic devices.A wintery landscape of snow-topped trees greets guests inside the Grand Foyer, which is meant to pay homage to the tradition of music at the White House.

The theme of holiday decorations marked as "a tradition": as a result, in every room there was something reminiscent about how Christmas and the New year was celebrated in the White house, its previous tenants over the past 200 years.

Vanity Fair readers were led to believe this week that First Lady Melania Trump never wanted her current title. And she's now ringing in Christmas at the White House in an era when Dictionary.com's word of the year is "complicit".

It's the most wonderful time of the year at the White House.

The Grand Foyer and Cross Hall were decorated with multiple Christmas trees covered in crystal ornaments and artificial snow inspired by the "Nutcracker Suite" theme of the 1961 White House holiday decorations.

Consequently, it makes flawless sense that meme culture - which tends to reflect our collective social and political anxieties - has regularly commented on Melania Trump with the central theme of how well she fits in or doesn't fit into the White House environment. "Then, visitors will see the Library, which features President Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1866 edition of 'A Christmas Carol, ' as they recall the time-honored custom of reading Christmas stories to loved ones". They don't use the word "Christmas" because it's not politically correct.

Christmas came early for the internet thanks to the First Lady's White House decorations.

In 2009, the Obamas' Christmas card said "Season's Greetings".

The children visiting the White House were clearly taken aback by Melania's stunning looks and grace, and rushed to hug.

During President Barack Obama's final Christmas in office, larger-than-life replicas of family dogs Bo and Sunny greeted visitors in the East Wing.
