"The holidays are upon us!! Right now: flotus is seeing to every last detail here at the WhiteHouse," says Ms Grisham in her tweet. The pictures posted shows an eerily lit passageway lined with white tree-like installations that cast shadows on the ceiling. The overall effect of the picture has Twitter using terms like 'creepy' and 'gloomy'.
While the picture does seem a little spooky, it seems the lighting in the hallway is to blame for the stark effect. A video tweeted by FLOTUS shows what the decorations look like and that gives a different perspective altogether.
It was, however, the photo tweeted by Ms Grisham that evoked several reactions on Twitter. Since being tweeted on November 27, the picture has collected over 4,400 'likes' and more than 1,100 retweets. Here's what Twitter is saying about it:
Are Christmas decorations supposed to give you creeping anxiety and a feeling of lingering dread?- amanda hugandkiss (@wendybyrdm) November 27, 2017

I was thinking The Nightmare Before Christmas, but Blair Witch works too- Emily Schaffhausen (@silly_emily3) November 27, 2017
Glad she's understood the aesthetic of the long national nightmare we're in.- Nandini (@nandelabra) November 27, 2017
it's sort of metaphoric, that long, foreboding tunnel of darkness swallowing us up- jenny gardiner (@jennygardiner) November 27, 2017
Well, I like really stark, spare things, and so I actually like what Melania did there as art, but *not as christmas decoration*. It looks more like a promenade in a commercial setting; it lacks the warmth of a home.- my cats' butler (@ladykayaker) November 28, 2017
Cold and creepy.- Ellen melchiondo (@EllenmelchEllen) November 27, 2017
Jesus God so gloomy!- Kersti (@MissingGirlsUSA) November 27, 2017
