Trump lights National Christmas Tree

Trump lights National Christmas Tree

There are obvious comparisons between the Obama's official Christmas cards and the Trumps' first Christmas card.

The White House Christmas Party kicks off at 2 p.m. Friday.

Music played as many onlookers watched First Lady Melania Trump press the button that would jump start the holiday lights on the festive tree. "The man who brought "Merry Christmas" back to our nation's capital - and you did, sir". He presided over the annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree during which he wished his countrymen and people across the world a very merry Christmas.

"Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of this incredible life forever changed the course of human history", Mr. Trump told a crowd along the National Mall near the White House. For example, he routinely makes the point that we should use the more traditional greeting of "Merry Christmas" over the politically correct "Happy Holidays". "We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants". It is set near the White house.

The event was organized by the graduate student and postdoctoral unions, along with other campus labor and political groups. They are the ones that, through their teaching, inspire students to fall in love with foreign languages.

More than 25,000 visitors are expected to tour the White House for the holidays and the kitchen is ready: 31,000 cookies have been baked, including 15,000 sugar cookies, many of which end up in purses for the trip home.

One Twitter user pointed out that the dimly lit hallway lined with dead branches painted white looks like the ideal spot to tape a "Stranger Things" scene.

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.
