First Lady Melania Trump is spearheading Christmas decorating efforts at the White House.

"As we approach the end of the year we got to thinking, "Did Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpWarren fundraises off of Trump's "Pocahontas" jab Dem senator slams Trump's "moral authority" after 'Pocahontas" remark Bill Press: Religion flunks morality MORE really bring Christmas Back to the White House?'" said host Chris Hayes, on MSNBC's "All In with Chris Hayes", before rolling the clip. The First Lady's Director of Communications Stephanie Grisham also sent out a tweet with the image of the hallway decorations that many are deeming eerie and spooky and better suited to Halloween than Christmas.

Before the recent invites were received, a spokesperson for the network said: "CNN will not be attending this year's White House Christmas party".

"Her theme is "Time-Honored Traditions", which the White House said pays respect to 200 years of holiday traditions at the executive mansion". Mrs. Trump tweeted Monday morning.

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

The family Christmas card is framed and on display.

Now President Trump has vowed to take on the so-called war on Christmas. According to trump, the phrase "Happy holidays" negates the Christian essence of Christmas.


The White House says 25,000 visitors are expected to take special Christmas tours of the building during the holidays.

The White House unveiled its holiday decorations this week, issuing a video (below) of the Balsam fir trees sparkling with lights and ornaments adorning rooms throughout the White House.

"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.
