Earlier this week, the White House revealed their Christmas decorations, and not everyone is so pleased with them.
In a statement, First Lady Melania Trump said, “I hope when visiting the People's House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays.” While there have been some positive responses to the 19-and-a-half-foot-tall Balsam fir tree and gingerbread White House, there have also been some criticisms that have been pretty funny as well. Below, take a look at some of the best responses so far, comparing the “holiday bone forest” to the look of films and TV shows like Pan’s Labyrinth, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Stranger Things.
Over 150 volunteers from 29 states were behind the makeover with this year’s theme being “Time-Honored Traditions.” For more photos inside the White House, be sure to check out this Curbed DC article.

I don’t know how people can claim Melania’s not happy in the White House. Just look how totally devoid of dread and horror and cold nightmare hellishness her Christmas decor is. pic.twitter.com/G0iLoBfPhc— Hadley Freeman (@HadleyFreeman) November 28, 2017
I photoshopped Jack Skellington into Melania's Christmas decor and honestly I like it now. pic.twitter.com/hqx1QYBGhI— Jesse McLaren (@McJesse) November 27, 2017
I wasn't sure whether Melania's White House Christmas decorations were more Pan's Labyrinth, It, or Stranger Things, so I combined them all. pic.twitter.com/FKkcVHcxlM— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) November 27, 2017
I scrolled by this photo of actual White House holiday decorations four times before I realized it was not from a production of Macbeth pic.twitter.com/yUOVYsCAuD— Joseph Scrimshaw (@JosephScrimshaw) November 27, 2017
Regardless of political stance I think we can all agree that the Whitehouse Christmas decorations look beautiful. pic.twitter.com/RVkXFYbgnP— Chill Life (@ChillLifeMinds) November 29, 2017
