Trump Brings Christmas Back To The White House

"As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us".

First lady Melania Trump hosted members of the press and children from Joint Base Andrews at an unveiling of this year's White House Christmas decorations today.

A gold presidential seal adorns the front of the card while the inside of the card includes the phrase "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year" with the first family's signatures at the bottom. Last year, for the Obamas' final year in the White House, military families were invited to the White House for the big reveal of the decorations, TIME reported. "I want to see Christmas".

"The president, (our son) Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House", the first lady said in a statement on Monday, Efe news reported.

Vanity Fair's Sarah Ellison wrote that in 2014, Trump was more serious than ever about a White House run, and he consulted Melania.

Her theme of "Time-Honored Traditions" is meant to pay homage to "200 years of holiday traditions", says HouseBeautiful.

The Obamas never used the word "Christmas" on any of their eight Christmas cards.

Other people were drawing their own analogies about the use of the twigs to deliver a message of Christmas cheer.

Donald Trump will probably park his urine-drenched La-Z-Boy recliner under the mistletoe hoping that Ivanka will have sipped one eggnog too many and make the mistake of getting to close to her father. At its center is the belief that Democrats, specifically Barack Obama, caved in to political correctness and preferred the non-denominational "Happy Holidays" instead of the Christian "Merry Christmas" in official greetings.

"A display of candy as part of Christmas decorations are seen in the Red Room".

With the theme "Time-Honored Traditions", the halls of the White House have been fully decked with 53 Christmas trees, 71 Christmas wreaths, more than 12,000 ornaments, and a 200-pound gingerbread reproduction of the president's home, according to ABC News.
