White House Christmas Decorations – level 2

04-12-2020 07:00

America´s First Lady, Melania Trump, showed her White House Christmas decorations to the public for the first time.

On social media, Trump said that this year´s theme of the decorations was ´America the Beautiful´. Trump said that she wanted to honor the American nation. She said that she was proud of people who made the country such a great place to live.

This was the reason why Trump chose traditional decorations with green trees, white lights, and red ornaments. In the past, Trump chose more unusual decorations. For example, in 2018, she chose red Christmas trees, and some people were not happy about them.

One thing has not changed. The Christmas tree is always 5.5 meters tall and it reaches the ceiling. It is necessary to remove the ceiling light to make room for it.

Difficult words: honor (to show high respect for someone), ornament (a thing that makes something look more beautiful), ceiling (the upper part of a room)

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