Spouses trump lit up the main Christmas tree of the country

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

Ringing in the holidays for the first time from Washington, President Donald Trump lit the National Christmas Tree Thursday evening, wishing the country "a Merry Christmas" - as he vowed to do during his campaign.

The new cards, signed by Barron, Melania and President Trump read "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year". 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.

"With Trump as your president, we are going to be celebrating "merry Christmas" again and it's going to be done with a big, attractive tax cut", he continued.

Johnson works in the Pineville-Bell County Public Library. The dancers echoed the first themed Christmas at the White House, Jacqueline Kennedy's "Nutcracker Suite" in 1961.

And Mrs. Trump didn't have to do all the decorating by herself. 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.

Roy Moore comes roaring back in recent poll
When Moore's speech was interrupted by protesters, Barbieri, wearing a "Gimme Moore" t-shirt, jumped up to loudly defend him. Roy Moore names quite explicitly the "THEY" behind the "malicious" attacks against him.

New this year are wreaths hanging from the exterior of every window.

Trump, who personally selected the decor, says she wanted to make the White House feel like home over the holidays.

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. Each one of us is a child of God.

Other decorations, according to BusinessInsider.com include 53 Christmas trees, more than 12,000 ornaments, 18,000 feet of Christmas lights, and 71 wreaths.
