The Trump administration kicked off its Christmas celebrations Monday with First Lady Melania Trump unveiling stunning decorations, including a video montage showing the incredibly tasteful displays throughout the White House.
This year’s theme, “Time-Honored Traditions” was selected by the First Lady in respect of 200 years of holiday traditions at the White House, administration officials said.
“The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” she said in a statement. “As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us. I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays. On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season.”
The decorations are up! The White House is ready to celebrate! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season!
