AceShowbiz - %cMelania Trump% designed the White House Christmas decoration this year with the theme of "Time Honored Traditions," and communication director for FLOTUS, Stephanie Grisham, has shared on Twitter the first look at the decorations.

People took to Twitter to comment on the picture, which features pots of tall white leafless branches. Most of them compared it to scary movies, including "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "The Blair Witch Project". "I was thinking 'The Nightmare Before Christmas', but Blair Witch works too," one wrote.

Another asked whether Christmas decorations supposed to give people creeping anxiety. "Are Christmas decorations supposed to give you creeping anxiety and a feeling of lingering dread?" the user commented, while another simply asked, "Are these the Halloween decorations?"

One other remarked that Melania must be thinking of "Armageddon 2419 A.D." and the four horses of the apocalypse when she designed the decorations. "Normally Christmas decor is meant to give you feelings of good cheer, singing by the fireplace to Bing Crosby," the user said. "But I see FLOTUS is obviously thinking of 'Armageddon' and the four horses of the apocalypse."
Well. That's quite an interesting way to go. Normally Christmas décor is meant to give you feelings of good cheer, singing by the fireplace to Bing Crosby. But I see FLOTUS is obviously thinking of Armageddon and the four horses of the apocalypse.
I can see why she thinks that.— Mr. Spock 🖖 (@SpockResists) 28 November 2017
There were also memes created to mock the gloomy decorations. A Twitter user added a picture of Babadook figure in the photo, captioning it with, "Melania's White House Christmas decor looks awesome if you add the Babadook."

Another added pictures of dementors. The user captioned it, "Melania deciding to add dementors to the White House Christmas decorations was a nice touch." One other put pictures of some famous scary characters in the picture. "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," the Twitter user captioned it.
