U.S. president says Melania Trump 'truly loves what she is doing'

White House unveils decorations for Christmas

The glitter of the Christmas holiday season meets the White House every year, but more than the decked halls and twinkling lights, the most sparkling thing is that, this year the USA president Donald Trump had vowed the country to send the discerned war, as being a candidate on campaign trail.

"Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year" read the 2017 card signed by Donald, Melania and their son, Barron Trump.

"So you want to show me how to do it?" she asked after sitting at a table with four students.

Depending on your social media platform of choice - and whom you follow on it - Melania Trump's November 27 reveal of this year's White House Christmas decorations was either a magical glimpse of a stunning winter wonderland or a nightmare pulled straight out of a horror movie.

Police responding to shots fired at the Galleria at Crystal Run
Police are continuing to search for a man who fired a gun at the Galleria at Crystal Run on a busy holiday shopping weekend. Cary Abbott said he planned on seeing a movie at the mall when he saw people "leaving in droves".

Vanity Fair's Sarah Ellison wrote that in 2014, Trump was more serious than ever about a White House run, and he consulted Melania.

Among the new touches that the Trumps introduced to the White House Christmas decor this year include wreaths topped with red bows outside each window.

And of course, there were those infamous "religion-free" holiday cards - featuring the family dogs without the word "Christmas".

Others sighed after seeing overly-sensitive reactions to the common holiday tradition. For anyone missing the White House's former occupants, the Obama family's message appears in a display of presidential holidays cards. At its center is the belief that Democrats, specifically Barack Obama, caved in to political correctness and preferred the non-denominational "Happy Holidays" instead of the Christian "Merry Christmas" in official greetings.

Sports report says Florida has moved on from the former NCAA and National Football League coach, according to multiple sources . Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense won't be seen in the Southeastern Conference next season after all.

Last year, the Obamas put out a giant gingerbread White House replica, as well as two lego gingerbread houses.

In the White House's East Wing, visitors can enjoy a Gold Star Family Tree, which honors those who have served in the military.

There are rooms and halls filled with cookies, Christmas trees, crafts, and classic decorations.

With this year's theme being "Time-honored Traditions", the State Floor, Grand Foyer and Cross Hall decorations celebrate the first White House Christmas with a specific theme, that of "The Nutcracker Suite" from President John F. Kennedy's 1961 Christmas.
