Per tradition, the White House is decorated for the holidays and it was revealed to the world through a special video 2018 Christmas Decorations at the White House. If you remember from last year, the First family opted to use an ice cold chilling white wonderland that lacked color and spirit. But if you thought that was strange, this year the Christmas decorations include a forest of crimson trees reports Time.
The video shows First Lady Melania Trump walking through a room full of ‘blood’ red berry trees that the internet has immediately deemed MEMEable.
For many the initial image of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. The story, in case you’ve been living under a rock, deals with a not so distant future dystopian society where women are a suppressed class forced to serve as surrogate mothers to dignitaries or into slavery if you cannot conceive. The male gender is the superior leader and women are essentially voiceless and are not allowed to read, write, or contribute to politics in any way. Scary? Yeah, so are these red trees.
Additionally, others remembered the bloodbath that was Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining
While others thought of something more fun and mindless
For me, there's only one thing I can think about:
The rest of the decorations seem to be more festive than last year’s frozen nightmare, but still, the internet cannot unsee the red trees—considering that turmoil that is currently happening on the Mexican border with the migrant caravan and the horror story that has been this presidency.
Red tidings to all!
