MAKING CHRISTMAS GREAT AGAIN! First Lady Melania Trump and Barron Trump received the official 2017 White House Christmas Tree today. It’s a 19-and-a-half-foot Balsam fir from Wisconsin that was picked out in September…
The National Christmas Tree Association and White House officials decide on the tree in a contest held every year:
CHAPMAN FAMILY WINS!
Silent Night Evergreens, owned by the Chapman family, last provided the official White House Christmas tree in 1998 and 2003, according to the National Christmas Tree Association.
The Chapman family got to present the tree at the White House and meet First Lady Melania Trump and Barron Trump.
After the first lady and son Barron gave their symbolic approval, the tree will be set up and decorated in the Blue Room of the White House.
THE FIRST LADY WROTE ON TWITTER:
“Thank you Silent Night Evergreens in Wisconsin for our beautiful tree!”
“POTUS, Barron & I are excited for Christmas in our new home!”
