And while the First Lady probably wanted to make the place feel warm and welcoming, her choice of decorations had the opposite effect.

Choosing white leafless trees with absolutely zero festive lights or baubles, the corridor of the White House looks like something out of a horror film once evening hits.

“Are Christmas decorations supposed to give you creeping anxiety and a feeling of lingering dread?” mocked one person on Twitter.

Social media took no time in creating meme upon meme, comparing Melania’s work to The Upside down from ‘Stranger Things’, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and even ‘The Blair Witch Project’.

“Come and play with us, Barron. Forever. And ever,” tweeted another with a photo of ‘The Shining’ twins standing in the hallway. “This year’s theme: A Blair Witch Christmas,” commented another critic.

Others said Melania was simply reflecting the depressing mood of the country under her husband’s rule.

“This photo is a perfect metaphor for Donald Trump’s first year as president,” wrote one man while another agreed: “FLOTUS really nailed that post-apocalyptic-hellscape-that-was-once-our-great-nation feel.”

Just compare it to former First Lady Michelle Obama’s cosy green-and-red and Laura Bush’s joyful decor.

Better luck next year, Melania.
