While the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony officially kicked off the nation's holiday season, the White House has already begun celebrating.

The FLOTUS revealed her new Christmas decorations on Monday, but she was not in attendance during the said reveal.

First lady Melania Trump was invited to Liberty University in Virginia to discuss the opioid crisis, social media, and life with the president. Seeing as the decorations always have a theme, it is possible that last year's was: "No ballerinas were harmed in the making of this video". This year, for the "American Treasures" theme, she opted for a patriotic red, white, and blue, with an emphasis on her "Be Best" program.

In 2017, the Trumps' first Christmas in the White House, her spindly, white trees with lights casting spooky shadows were also the subject of "Shining" memes.

Pics and even a clip of Melania walking through the newly decorated house were shared on the official White House Twitter.

"I knew when I started the initiative that I will be criticized, but I will do what is right for the next generation", Mrs. Trump said.

At the panel event, Mrs Trump also spoke about her son Barron, saying the 12-year-old is "all into sports" so did not spend time on social media. "Thank you to the many volunteers and staff who worked hard to decorate the halls of the People's House in Christmas cheer". Earlier this month, when asked about his war on the media, Trump explained: "I have to fight back".

Trump included the opioid crisis and how it affects children as one part of her three-pronged platform, "Be Best", which she launched in May.

She will later take questions from the town hall audience of Liberty University students, her spokesperson Stephanie Grisham told CNN.
