On 11/23/2020, First lady Melania Trump celebrated the arrival of the annual White House Christmas tree. The first lady emerged alone from the North Portico of the White House around noon to accept the 18½-foot Fraser fir from a tree farm in West Virginia. Her hair had a fresh look with new blonde highlights following her recovery last month from COVID-19. For the holiday kick-off event, Trump wore a black-and-white houndstooth coat, black gloves and matching black boots.
In festive style, the tree was delivered in a green two large Clydesdale horse-drawn carriage, decorated with wreathes and a sign in red font that read “White House Christmas Tree 2020” as a military band played “O Tannenbaum” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” (Christmas music). Tree farm owners Dan and Anne Taylor from Dan and Bryan Trees of West Virginia attended the event.
After approaching the carriage, Trump walked around the tree to inspect it before speaking to the carriage drivers. She then posed in front of the fir for photos before waving to photographers and walking back into the White House.
In a tweet in anticipation of the holiday event, Melania Trump tweeted: “Since 1966, the arrival of the White House Christmas Tree has become an iconic holiday tradition. This year’s tree, a lovely 18 1/2 foot Fraser Fir from Dan and Bryan Trees of West Virginia, will arrive tomorrow at the @WhiteHouse North Portico. #WHChristmas”
