First lady Melania Trump unveiled the 2019 White House Christmas decorations in several glittering rooms on Monday, keeping with the theme of " The Spirit of America ."

The White House described the theme as "a tribute to the traditions, customs, and history that make our Nation great."

CNN's Kate Bennett reported that the days of decorating the White House's main rooms took volunteers from all 50 states to hang 800 feet of garland, 15,000 bows, and more than 2,500 strands of lights.

The White House also released a video tour of this year's decorations:
