Впечатляющие интерьеры новогоднего Белого дома

"Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!"

Now President Trump has vowed to take on the so-called war on Christmas. "If I become president, I guarantee we're going to be saying "Merry Christmas" at every store", he told the crowd.

In his remarks, Trump said, for Christians this is a holy season, the celebration of the birth of lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

"The Christmas Story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son and the most extraordinary gift of all-the gift of God's love for all of humanity", he said. "It's one that we've heard and we speak about and we dream about and now, as the president of the United States, it's my tremendous honor to now wish America and the world a very Merry Christmas". The theme for this year is "Time-Honored Traditions", and included in that is a handsome nativity scene. "That is what makes every Christmas merry?".

Speaking from behind a bullet-proof glass enclosure, Trump also bragged about the mild weather, which hovered in the mid-50s, and compared himself to President Ulysses S. Grant, who signed legislation making Christmas a federal holiday.

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania lit the National Christmas Tree for the first time on Thursday, wishing the country "a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year" and "unbelievable holidays".

"Living trees have been used as the National Christmas Tree since 1973, and before that from 1924-1953".

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, a Norway spruce that came from State College, was lit on Wednesday night in New York City.

Since 1966, the National Christmas Tree Association has been holding a competition for the official White House Blue Room tree. 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.
