It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the White House. But Melania Trump made a decision to sit this one out. The East Room featured mantel pieces trimmed with silhouetted skylines of New York, St. Louis, Chicago and San Francisco.

At the 1991 preview, Helen Thomas, longtime White House correspondent for United Press International, asked Barbara Bush how she thought the economic "depression" (a word never uttered at the White House) would affect Christmas 1991. And in 2018, some trees stood out more than others. Meanwhile, the Gold Star Family tree pays tribute to troops. And they expect 30,000 visitors to walk through the halls on holiday tours.
