Melania Trump unveils White House Christmas decorations - peek inside

Make no doubt about it, Christmas is in full gear at the White House this year, and First Lady Melania dazzled as she toured the decorated premises with the aptly named "Time-honored Traditions" Christmas theme. The former model-turned-First Lady "personally selected and was involved in every detail", said the White House in a statement.

The family did away with the Obama family's slogan for the card - which wished Americans a 'joyous holiday season'. They don't use the word "Christmas" because it's not politically correct.

After Melania Trump unveiled holiday decor at the White House Monday, people were quick to point out a particular decoration that could have been done away with.

"Surprise", the first lady said as she later entered the Red Room, where handiwork with gumdrops was underway.

One said: 'Seems like a not-great idea to have mistletoe hanging in the White House amid a stretch of sexual misconduct stories'.

Melania Trump, the wife of the pussy-grabber-in-chief, was responsible for decorating the White House for Christmas, and you'd thing the last thing she would do is hang a sprig of mistletoe.

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.

Survey Shows Impact of Small Business Saturday
Everyone wants businesses to grow and for people to be employed. "There is a love that goes in to all of these businesses". The administration reports that between 53 percent and 62 percent of employment in Macomb County is by small businesses.

There are some 12,000 ornaments, more than 1,000 feet of garland and 53 Christmas trees, including the 18-and-a-half foot tall White House Christmas tree. "I want to see Christmas".

It's fair to say there's nothing subtle about a Trump Christmas at the White House.

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.

A tree-lined walkway leading to a beautifully decorated tree might sound like a good festive addition to the White House this Christmas.

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

The standout feature, however, would have to be the 160-kilogram gingerbread house in the State Dining Room of the White House.

During President Barack Obama's final Christmas in office, larger-than-life replicas of family dogs Bo and Sunny greeted visitors in the East Wing.
