PHOTOS: White House Christmas Decorations Unveiled

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the White House. First lady Melania Trump received the official 2019 White House Christmas tree late last month after the Douglas Fir traveled from Pennsylvania. That tree is now serving as a centerpiece for Christmas decorations in the Blue Room of the White House, with decorations and other trees spread throughout the White House.
