According to Town and Country, the photo was snapped in the Cross Hall of the White House on Dec. 5 and features two of 53 Christmas trees that have been set up in the presidential home, with the official tree being a 19 and a half feet Balsam fir towering in the Grand. The theme for this year’s White House Christmas decoration display is “Time-Honored Traditions,” which Melanie Trump unveiled last month, Fox News said. The First Lady seems to be enjoying the festive season, having personally selected the decorations to be displayed and tweeting about it.
