A White House welcomes Halloween: the first lady and her husband met the trick-or-treaters, many of kids are from military families this year.
On Sunday evening, the hosts of the most famous building of Pennsylvania Avenue have celebrated the upcoming All Saints Day. Although the first couple opted for no Halloween costumes, the White House was decked out in seasonal decorations. Melania Trump opted a classical Bottega Veneto plaid wool coat, while her husband wore the dark navy one.
Melania Trump handed out Hershey’s Kisses and Twizzlers to the children, this year’s candy boxes were decorated with the signatures of the first couple. Halloween orange candy bags were inscribed with “Made in America” at the top.
The first ever Halloween in the White House took place in 1958, during the Eisenhower presidency. That time, the first lady Mamie decided to decorate 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for the holiday. The Kennedy administration was the first to open the White House doors to young trick-or-treaters from humanitarian organizations like UNICEF.
