Christmas Has Arrived For The Trumps At The White House

The Trump family's first presidential Christmas card says "Merry Christmas" rather than "Happy Holidays", the Obamas' preferred greeting.

As the holiday season begins, it is clear that Trump has lived up to his campaign promise.

"We're gonna say Merry Christmas again!" he promised last December. At the time, Mrs. Trump explained that she wanted to remain in New York City with their son Barron until he finished the school year.

US First Lady Mealnia Trump has given people a tour of her first Christmas at the White House. The star ornaments adorning the nearby tree pay tribute to the country's Gold Star families and visitors are encouraged to send holiday messages to military members stationed overseas via special electronic devices.A wintery landscape of snow-topped trees greets guests inside the Grand Foyer, which is meant to pay homage to the tradition of music at the White House.

They're arguably one of the most talked about couples who have ever lived in the White House and Donald Trump has hit back at claims that his wife hates being First Lady of the United States. The White House revealed the theme Monday in a preview for journalists. The theme of Time-Honored Christmas Traditions is evident throughout the decorations.

A promotional video from the White House showcasing this year's decorations zoomed in on a traditional nativity set featuring a baby Jesus wearing a crown. For anyone missing the White House's former occupants, the Obama family's message appears in a display of presidential holidays cards.

In other words, the report suggests that the precise opposite of what Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning is true.

On the State Floor of the White House, the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall celebrate the first themed White House Christmas, which was the "Nutcracker Suite" in 1961.

There are rooms and halls filled with cookies, Christmas trees, crafts, and classic decorations.

Among the new touches this year: On the outside, wreaths topped with red bows adorn every White House window.

Among the Christmas standards is an 18-foot (about 5.5-meter) fir tree in its traditional spot in the Blue Room, decorated with ornaments bearing the seals of every state and USA territory.
