On Sunday, First Lady Melania Trump unveiled this year's holiday décor via Twitter with a festive compilation video.

This Christmas season I want to honor those who have shaped our country and made it the place we are proud to call home, and I am excited to announce our White House holiday theme, "The Spirit of America" When I travel the country, I am inspired by the hard-working people and families that I meet.

This year's display is a homage to "The Spirit of America". "I am delighted to share this lovely exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience of the #Christmas season!"

The 2018 White House decorations were brutally criticized because they included 40 infamously creepy blood red trees.

The East Colonnade of the White House is lined with double rows of see-through panels etched with more than 60 examples of American design, innovation and architecture, ranging from the Woolworth Building in New York City to the Space Needle in Seattle.

Compared to those choices, critics may have a tough time taking issue with this year's relatively traditional decoration decisions.
