Melania and Donald Trump Gearing Up for Halloween at the White House

TRICK OR TREAT: Fright might be a common denominator across party lines, but the first couple will be taking a more playful approach to Halloween with a pre-holiday celebration Sunday at the White House.
First Lady Mamie Eisenhower was the first to celebrate Halloween at the White House with a luncheon for staffers’ wives in the State Dining Room. Skeleton decorations were strewn from the wall lights, and jack-o-lanterns, dried corn stalks, pumpkins and red apples added to the decor. But this weekend’s White House trick-or-treaters will be making the rounds, thanks to Caroline Kennedy and her late brother, John Jr., who were the first presidential children to celebrate the holiday with other children. The Kennedys also introduced a charitable component to the festivities with President Kennedy talking up UNICEF in 1961, according to the White House Historical Association. Former first daughter Amy Carter celebrated a birthday at the White House with a Halloween-themed party, as did Hillary Clinton decades later on more than one occasion. (Clinton turned 71 today.)
For Halloween with the Trumps, cornstalks will stretch along columns up to the second-floor Truman balcony, and assortment of foliage, decorative pumpkins, gourds and hay bales will add to the fall feel.
