Trump has vowed to put "Christmas" back at the center of the holidays.

Throughout the month of December, more than 25,000 visitors will take part in White House public tours. Thankfully those days are gone, and the current first family made a simple, but bold statement by wishing "Merry Christmas" in their card for the season. The theme of this year's decorations is "Time-Honored Traditions".

"Are Christmas decorations supposed to give you creeping anxiety and a feeling of lingering dread?" one Twitter user wrote to which another responded: "May as well". "You go to department stores and they'll say 'Happy New Year, ' or they'll say other things and it'll be red, they'll have it painted".

"We're going to start saying "Merry Christmas again". She did finally move to Washington, D.C.in June, making good on plans to make the trip after her son Barron finished out his school year. "I hope when visiting the People's House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays", she added.

The White House said she personally chose every detail of the decor.

In addition, she is the only first lady to be a president's third wife, and the only one to pose nude for published photographs.

He also retweeted photos of his wife smiling and hugging children after his initial tweets.

The Trump family is celebrating the Christmas season - their first at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue - with a 19 1/2-foot Balsam fir tree, a Christmas card and many more special events and decorations.

One added: "Pointless. When @realDonaldTrump sees 'a lovely woman, [he] just start [s] kissing them.' I hear he doesn't 'even wait". This is the tree that "Barron" is seen grabbing a book from in the animation above. For her entrance from the residence into the Grand Lobby, ballet dancers performed to The Nutcracker.

The 350-pound gingerbread house in the State Dining Room offers a view of the White House from the South Lawn, with wreaths on every window and a USA flag flying from its sugary rooftop.

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

During President Barack Obama's final Christmas in office, larger-than-life replicas of family dogs Bo and Sunny greeted visitors in the East Wing.

The standout feature, however, would have to be the 160-kilogram gingerbread house in the State Dining Room of the White House.

"The lunch conversation inevitably turned to whether the White House would display its crèche, customarily placed in a prominent spot in the East Room".
