Jill Biden has unveiled her highly anticipated 2021 White House Christmas decorations.

This is the first Christmas the First Lady has had at the White House - and after the previous four years of darker-themed decor exhibited by Melania Trump, many were excited to see how Dr. Biden’s matched up

Having famously been caught in a leaked audio recorded by her advisor and former BFF Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Melania said of her yearly Christmas duties: “I’m working … my a** off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a f*** about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?”

The First Lady has a responsibility to do it, indeed. We hope Jill Biden had more fun than Melania apparently had...

Both of the trees seem to be decorated to the brim but Jill Biden’s incorporated a lighter, more angelic feel to her decorations.

While Melania Trump’s gingerbread house was mostly a replica of the White House and its gardens’ Dr. Biden’s includes a much more intricate landscape. Jill Biden’s features buildings alongside the White House such as a hospital, gas station, a school, post office, and a grocery story—seemingly a nod to essential workers and first responders.

Melania Trump typically kept her decorations simplistic, adorned by flowers instead of traditional Christmas-themed items. Biden, however, seems to revel in festive green and red ornaments, stockings, and more.
