White House Christmas Decorations – level 1

04-12-2020 07:00

America’s First Lady, Melania Trump, prepares Christmas decorations at the White House. People can finally see it on the Internet.

The theme of the decorations is ’America the Beautiful’. Trump wants to show high respect to American people. She says that she is proud of American people. They make the country a great place to live.

The decorations are traditional. It means that the trees are green, the lights are white, and the ornaments are red. The biggest tree is in the Blue room. It is about 5.5 meters tall. It is necessary to take away the ceiling light before the tree can go in the room.

Trump chooses red trees in 2018. Some people are not happy. Now it seems that they like this year’s decorations very much.

Difficult words: proud (when you are happy when somebody does something great), traditional (something that people usually do and they do it for a long time), ornament (a thing that makes something look nicer).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
