The Grand Foyer and Cross Hall were decorated with multiple Christmas trees covered in crystal ornaments and artificial snow inspired by the "Nutcracker Suite" theme of the 1961 White Householiday decorations. "It says "happy holidays" all over".
"The White House Gingerbread House is seen in the State Dining Room".
That included a retweet by Trump on Tuesday of a tweet by his wife in which she relayed that "the decorations are up! I want to see Christmas".
