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

"The decorations are up!"

The piece, in Vanity Fair, quoted an anonymous long-time friend of the Trumps as saying that the first lady "didn't want this come hell or high water". "Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!" the mother-of-one tweeted alongside the clip.

The White House gingerbread house this year is a mini replica of the actual building. Is Melania happy to be First Lady or do you think she hates the role? Classmates quickly followed for hugs of their own. The dancers echoed the first themed Christmas at the White House, Jacqueline Kennedy's "Nutcracker Suite" in 1961. "I want to see Christmas". A boy showed her how to make them.

Trump has long rejected the politically correct trend of bucking the friendly "Merry Christmas" with the generic "Happy Holidays".

President Trump vowed to put the Christ back into Christmas and based on this video that's exactly what he did - delivering on a promise to end the ongoing war on Christmas. A separate tree near the East Wing entrance is dedicated to families that lost loved ones in the military.

Winning the "War on Christmas" was a recurring theme during Donald Trump's presidential campaign, and continued after he was elected.

More than 150 volunteers from 29 states spent 1,600 hours over the holiday weekend decking the White House halls. She did a final check late Sunday after returning from the family's Thanksgiving at their home in Palm Beach, Florida.

The theme this year, "Time-Honored Traditions", credited to Trump, is intended as a homage to 200 years of White House holiday customs.

And the Christmas decorations are simply spectacular - the White House decorated with lots of red and green and gold.

Next, the China Room "is set up for a family Christmas dinner, with the table displaying the china from President Ronald Reagan".
