It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the White House. First Lady Melania Trump has designed a colorfully patriotic theme for the holiday decorations now on display, showcasing America’s heritage.

During December, the White House will host more than 100 open houses, many receptions, and more than 30,000 visitors on public tours.
