Inside tour: First lady decorates White House for Christmas

Inside tour: First lady decorates White House for Christmas

The National Christmas Tree will be lit during a ceremony that starts at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 30, at the White House. "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year", says the card signed by President Donald Trump, the first lady and Barron, their 11-year-old son. "Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!"

"With Trump as your president, we are going to be celebrating "merry Christmas" again and it's going to be done with a big, lovely tax cut", he continued.

The first lady's theme is "Time-Honored Traditions", a nod to 200 years of holiday celebrations at the executive mansion.

"We pray that our country will be a place where every child knows a home filled with love, a community rich with hope, and a nation blessed with faith", said President Trump. "We are called to serve one another, to love one another, and to pursue peace in our hearts and all throughout the world". Since 1966, the National Christmas Tree Association has been holding a competition for the official White House Blue Room tree. The First Lady's Director of Communications Stephanie Grisham also sent out a tweet with the image of the hallway decorations that many are deeming eerie and spooky and better suited to Halloween than Christmas.
