First Lady Melania Trump unveiled the White House's gorgeous Christmas décor Monday, revealing a patriotic theme. The White House is calling them "topiary trees", and their boughs seem to have been constructed from strung red orbs, which resemble the strings of cranberries that accented the Christmas trees of yore.

"American Treasures" honors "the unique heritage of America", according to a White House statement.

Ornaments adorning garlands in the Red Room feature Melania Trump's "Be Best" anti-bullying campaign logo. "It is a symbol of valor and bravery". Shots of "Be Best" branded tree ornaments and a wreath constructed entirely out of promotional pencils serve as a nice reminder of that time the first lady launched a (grammatically awkward) policy initiative created to tackle a vaguely defined spectrum of issues, including childhood bullying and opiate abuse. "On behalf of my family, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".

Christmas has arrived at the White House. You can spot other brightly colorful trees in the Vermeil room, where there are trees sparkling with blue and gold.

During her years in the White House, Michelle Obama appeared at the holiday decor unveiling with her dogs for photos but did not take questions from reporters.

Also on display are the customary gingerbread house and the traditional White House tree, which stands at 5.5 meters tall.
