First Lady Jill Biden is unveiling the White House holiday decorations and theme on Monday, and Twitter fans are hopeful there won’t be any 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, husband, Levi, and children Levi II, Marcus and Elliana— to honor the Guard’s support 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 very traditional “America the Beautiful” holiday look during her last year at 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 recorded phone call: “Who gives a fuck about Christmas stuff?”
