A South Dakota Mom Had Her ‘Christmas Wish,’ Come True Thanks To Melania

A South Dakota mom wrote a letter to First Lady Melania Trump, praying to get an answer. Her two kids told her it was “one in a million chances“to expect to receive anything from the White House, much less directly from the first lady. Candace Schumacher had already lost every hope for her ‘Christmas Wish,’ but then a miracle happened. She received the long-awaiting letter from Melania Trump saying “her dream had just come true.” You don’t want to miss this.

Candace Schumacher, who was watching a tour of the White House at Christmas time on HGTV a few months ago, said that he enjoys making Christmas decorations. Over the years she has gotten a few “big jobs,” including, decorating the South Dakota Capitol inside and outside.

Despite doing some research, she failed to find much on who decorates the White House at Christmas. It’s a great job as she concluded by watching the tour on TV. However, she found out all the decisions are being made by the First Lady of the United States.

The Aberdeen News reports, “Schumacher penned letters to U.S. Sens. Mike Rounds and John Thune of South Dakota and Rep. Kristi Noem, along with First Lady Melania Trump. The letters went unanswered for a long period of time before the good news finally came that she was being considered for the job.”

“There was no application or anything. I just said I was interested in decorating the White House,” Schumacher said. “There was no response and my kids kept telling me it was such a long shot. If you want to do something, you have to go for it or else it’s just a wish. You don’t want any regrets. You have to see what you can do in life.”

Her two kids told her that writing to the White House and asking Melania Trump whether she could come and help her with the Christmas decorations is a little bit insane since it is the White House after all. But, Candace said she felt her heart whispered to give it a try and see if her dream will come true.

Finally, in October, a letter came with a return address that read, “From the Office of the First Lady of the United States.” Candace was astonished. She was happy that she had, at least, received any kind of response. Then, she opened the letter and discovered it was Melania Trump telling her that she would love to have her help with the White House Christmas decorations. This was the happiest moment for Candace and for her two kids as well.

“I’m so humbled and grateful for this opportunity. Hundreds of thousands of people will be seeing this on TV and it’s such an honor to represent Watertown and South Dakota as well,” Schumacher said. “I’m proud for Watertown and South Dakota. I don’t think another person from the state has ever done this before.”

Candace has never been to Washington, D.C., so this really will be an opportunity for the retired school teacher turned Christmas decorations enthusiast to try a lot of things for the first time. Much of the details are all hush-hush, as the Aberdeen News reported, “Many of the details are being kept secret from the selected candidates.”

The report adds, “They do know that they will be divided into smaller groups and each group will be responsible for a certain room in the White House. Schumacher doesn’t know what room she will actually be decorating.”

Four florists made a decision that this year the decorations will be on a theme chosen by Melania Trump. The theme is expected to be revealed in the last minute on November 30th, when the official White House tree lighting ceremony happens.

The Obamas hired professional designers at the cost of taxpayers to do their blah “holiday” decorations, so we really appreciate the fact that Melania is going with a regular middle-class mom from South Dakota, who is volunteering her time. Melania Trump already gave a little hint that she is bringing back nativity scenes and the Christmas spirit by focusing on Christ’s birth, removing Michelle Obama’s secular focus which was a “winter holiday.”

Liberals losers were shocked when the First Lady tweeted hashtag #ChristmasTraditions, in describing how she will transform the White House for Christmas 2017, and it will be one lucky mom from South Dakota at her side, “making Christmas great again” at the White House.
