Trumps light national Christmas tree for first time

Melania Trump decorated the White House for Christmas and the internet thinks it's creepy AF

The National Christmas Tree will be lit during a ceremony that starts at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 30, at the White House.

"Now as the president of the United States, it's my tremendous honour to finally wish America and the world a very Merry Christmas", Trump said, as the audience cheered. Nevertheless, Melania has been a busy bee decorating the White House for Christmas.

"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.

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

Johnson works in the Pineville-Bell County Public Library. That is the true source of joy this time of the year.

And that wish for a Merry Christmas, was proclaimed loud and proud, all the way down to this year's official Christmas cards.

Former US President Ulysses S. Grant signed legislation marking Christmas as a national holiday. "It says "happy holidays" all over", Donald Trump proclaimed in the past.

The 350-pound (160-kilogram) 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 US flag flying from its sugary rooftop.

The holiday celebrations get underway Monday with a party for the volunteer decorators and will continue into December with receptions and parties - sometimes two a day - for the next several weeks, including a party Friday for the news media.

This year's National Christmas Tree is a Colorado blue spruce from Virginia, ad it was planted on the Ellipse on October 27, 2012, according to Shelby Galvin, public affairs specialist Public Affairs Specialist with the National Parks Service.

"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.
