Christmas holidays are full of spirit. The elegant decorations in the White House, based on the theme of Christmas, are also allegorical to the feeling of patriotism in America.
First Lady Melania Trump declared Sunday night, Dec. 1, that this year’s White House Christmas decorations would be infused with “The Spirit of America.”
“The Spirit of America” is shining in the @WhiteHouse! I am delighted to share this beautiful exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season!” she wrote on her Twitter account.

U.S. patriotism is reflected in all the Christmas decorations at the White House, with a broad respect for Christian traditions.
Traditional green ribbons mix with formidable reds, whites and blues, and a White House of gingerbread is flanked by models of famous American monuments, including Mount Rushmore, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty.
Also on display are golden eagles and other decorations inspired by patriotic sentiment, which was restored a few years ago when President Trump took office.
The first lady’s announcement was applauded by millions of patriots but criticized by many liberals who hoped Barack Obama would succeed in eradicating this Christian holiday.
In his first proclamation in 2017, President Trump called on Americans to “seek the protection, guidance, and wisdom of God” and recognized the Almighty as the root of the nation’s blessings once again.
With the arrival of Donald Trump to the presidency came the protection of religious freedom in the United States and around the world with special attention to minorities persecuted for their beliefs.
In contrast, former President Obama had been openly opposed to the religious sentiments of Jewish Christian spiritual traditions and in fact attended very few religious services during his tenure.
According to the independent historical and religious organization Wallbuilders, former President Obama despised the Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish religions in the United States, which is why they call him anti-biblical.
The organization denounces that Obama has favored the Islamic religion especially, in many cases to the detriment of American Christian tradition.
On Oct. 19, 2010, Obama began deliberately omitting the phrase “the Creator” when citing the Declaration of Independence, an omission he has made no less than seven times.
The conclusion of many is that former President Barack Obama is a hidden Muslim, even though he officially presents himself as a Protestant Christian, with some even mentioning that he is a follower of Muhammad, as President Trump suggested.
The United States has a long history of values centered on Christianity and faith that the left has tried to bend, yet traditions are still alive in most American homes.
