OPINION: Melania Trump Dreams of a Very Red Christmas

WASHINGTON, D.C. (FNN NEWS) – First Lady Melania Trump clearly isn’t having a blue Christmas this year. She just revealed this year’s White House holiday decorations, which feature a decidedly red color palette. Most striking, perhaps, are the crimson topiary trees.

This year’s Christmas decorations follow the theme “American Treasures,” which celebrates patriotism and honors elements of the country’s heritage.

The idea for the color themed came from the “pales,” which are the red stripes found in the presidential seal, and are symbolic of valor and bravery, according to the statement.

“Our theme honors the heart and spirit of the American people,” said Trump.

One thing is for sure: the choice of red was new for the White House holidays, as many firsts we have seen.
