Patriotism is the theme of Christmas at the White House this year.

Melania Trump announced The Spirit Of America as the theme in a tweet that included a minute-long video of the Christmas decorations being unveiled on Monday.

The video shows the first lady walking through the public floor of the White House amid Christmas trees decked out with white lights.

Mrs Trump is seen sprinkling fake snow on one of the trees and adjusting a mini-wreath on the traditional gingerbread White House.
