The White House Christmas decorations are here once again, and this year, first lady Melania Trump has selected the familiar theme of patriotism.

Melania Trump is celebrating American patriotism at the White House this Christmas, incorporating red and blue into the traditional holiday green, adding a timeline of American design, innovation and architecture and studding a Christmas tree with her family's annual ornament, the American flag.

This year's theme is titled "The Spirit of America", and it's perfectly on-brand for the administration: chintzy, vaguely menacing, and all bathed in lights of blinding white.

The Office of the First Lady invited reporters and Breitbart News to an early Monday morning preview of the decorations, a tribute to "The Spirit of America".

The President and the First Lady welcome guests to the White House for several parties and reception throughout the Christmas season.

No matter which state they call home, many Americans share a strong set of values and deep appreciation for the traditions and history of our great nation. There was no sign of the red cranberry trees that drew so much criticism previous year.

Here are a few of the highlights of the White House decorated for the holidays.

U.S. landmarks surrounded the Ginger Bread White House in the State Dining Room.

The video shows Melania opening a White House Advent calendar, straightening a ring of roses around the fireplace and strolling through the brightly lit hallways of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
