In fact, in 2011, the show got an average of a whopping 9 million viewers in just one episode. Cabs are here! The Jersey Shore cast is officially reuniting on MTV .

A press statement from the White House says the decorations were designed by First Lady Melania Trump "with a nod to tradition" and paying "respect to 200 years of holiday traditions at the White House".

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

"It says "happy holidays" all over", Donald Trump proclaimed in the past.

The nearly 100-year-old tradition dates back to the 30th president of the U.S., President Calvin Coolidge, in 1923.
