National Christmas Tree Lighting is tonight; here's how to watch

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

"I told you about 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, lovely tax cut", he told the cheering crowd. The theme of the White House holiday decorations this year is 'Time-Honored Traditions'. "On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season", said the first lady.

It was in that first year that organizers officially deemed the tree the "National Christmas Tree".

In a video the First Lady posted on Twitter, viewers can see the nativity scene, which shows Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus with a crown, as well as other stunning Christmas decorations.

First lady Melania Trump was at the helm of the 95th annual National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony on Thursday night, flipping the switch after the president led the crowd in a countdown from ten.

During his campaign, Trump had promised that, when he was elected, people would be saying "Merry Christmas again", a reference to what he characterized as the country's obsession with political correctness.

The President said to the citizens that "every year during christmas time we recognise the spirit of christmas is not what we have, it's about who we are, each one of us is a child of god, that is the true source of joy, this time of the year, that is what makes every christmas merry".

Melania Trump, alongside President Donald Trump, wears a red Chanel coat with nude Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps.

Although, the 44th president may have chosen not to use the term "Christmas" in his cards, he and Mrs. Obama often wished the nation a Merry Christmas in his weekly address and via social media.

A Nativity scene has been on display since 1967, including during the term of President Obama.
