Happy Thanksgiving! This day should not only be filled with food, football, and family, but also with the deepest sense of gratitude as well.
On this special holiday, friends and family typically gather around their tables and share a meal together. This is no different for President Trump and First Lady Melania.
President Trump is spending Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago, the “winter White House.” Melania’s press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, gave an insight into what is on their Thanksgiving menu.
The first family will enjoy:
- Mashed potatoes and gravy
- Sweet potatoes with marshmallows
- A variety of baked goods
- Local produce and cheeses
- Red snapper
- Florida stone crab
- Dessert, including cakes and pies
Because they were spending their holiday away from the White House, Melania Trump received the official White House Christmas tree early. She and Barron accepted the tree from a Wisconsin farm on Monday.
Next week, Melania will reveal the final holiday decor and theme that she has chosen for this Christmas season. On Monday, the First Lady will host the first of many holiday arts and craft nights.
The National Christmas Tree lighting will take place on Thursday.
