First lady Melania Trump’s first White House Christmas video prominently included a nativity scene among other decorations on display at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, while Michelles Obama’s first Christmas video did not.
As reported by The Western Journal, this year’s White House Christmas theme is titled “Time-Honored Traditions.”
“The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House,” said First Lady Melania Trump said in a release on Monday.
“As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us,” she added.
“I hope when visiting the People’s House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays,” Trump stated. “On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season.”
On display in the East Wing of the White House is the first family’s Christmas card, which also includes the words “Merry Christmas.”

President Donald Trump often promised on the presidential campaign trail his desire to bring the phrase back.
During their entire eight years in office, Barack and Michelle Obama never included the phrase “Merry Christmas” on their Christmas cards, opting instead for “Happy Holidays,” the New York Post reported.
Michelle’s first Christmas video also did not include the nativity scene in it.
At the Values Voter Summit last month, Trump said, “You know we’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct.”
“Well guess what, we’re saying Merry Christmas again,” the president said.
“We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values,” he pledged.
