White House Displays Beautiful Nativity Scene with Baby Jesus

White House Displays Beautiful Nativity Scene with Baby Jesus”

President Trump has often reiterated that "We're gonna start saying Merry Christmas again!" and the White House decorations seem to back up the Trump family's commitment to celebrating the Christmas holiday. Inside, glistening wintry branches line both sides of an East Wing hallway that leads guests to a tree decorated with the Trump family's official Christmas ornament, a gold-toned bauble featuring the presidential coat of arms surrounded by a wreath of holly.

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.

In 2017, that Christmas spirit is now on full display at the White House.

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.

Now President Trump has vowed to take on the so-called war on Christmas. The tradition began in 1923 with President Calvin Coolidge and takes place in President's Park, just south of the White House.

The first lady's office previewed the decorations for journalists on Monday after more than 150 volunteers from 29 states spent 1,600 hours during the long holiday weekend decking the White House halls. She did a final check late Sunday after returning from the family's Thanksgiving at their home in Palm Beach, Florida.

At the annual lighting of the national Christmas tree, President Trump said Thursday evening the holiday reminds Americans that "each one of us is a child of God".
