White House Displays Beautiful Nativity Scene with Baby Jesus

"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.

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

With a theme dubbed "Time-Honored Traditions", which pays homage to 200 years of White House holiday customs, it included a spread of 53 Christmas trees, 71 Christmas wreaths, more than 12,000 ornaments and a 200-pound gingerbread reproduction of the White House, according to ABC News. The dancers echoed the first themed Christmas at the White House, Jacqueline Kennedy's "Nutcracker Suite" in 1961.

"The decorations are up!" the first lady tweeted Monday morning.

Walters, in her invites, reportedly said: "The President wanted you to know that while the rest of CNN will not be attending the Christmas reception, if you're able to he is still happy to have you - the cameramen, sound, and other technicians, who work so tirelessly behind the scenes - to come participate".

Trump has repeatedly taken shots at Obama for not wishing the country a "Merry Christmas", both before and after he took office.

Meanwhile, inside the White House, there's a Kentucky connection to the White House Chrismas Decorations.

Former US President Ulysses S. Grant signed legislation marking Christmas as a national holiday.

Among the Christmas, standards are an 18-by-6-foot (5.5-by-1.8-meter) Balsam fir from Wisconsin in the traditional spot in the Blue Room, decorated with ornaments bearing the seals of every state and USA territory.

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

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. More than 25,000 visitors are expected to tour the White House for the holidays and the kitchen is ready: a total of 31,000 cookies have been baked, including 15,000 sugar cookies. Each one of us is a child of God.
