After getting rid of Obama’s Islamic prayer rooms inside the White House, Donald Trump plans to restore the traditional Christmas celebration with decorated trees, ornaments, Christmas cookies, and of course the reason for the season, remembering the birth of Jesus Christ.
“You go into a department store. When was the last time you saw ‘Merry Christmas?’ You don’t see it anymore. We’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again. Above all else, we know this: In America, we don’t worship government. We worship God.”
That’s right. Trump is making Christmas great again. He’s focusing on what this season is about, leaving behind any and all politically correct pettiness.
Earlier this morning on Twitter, First Lady Melania Trump posted a short, warmhearted, video which presented a few beautifully decorated rooms in the White House.
“The decorations are up!
@WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate! Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!”
Melania ditched the Mao balls of seasons past and replaced them with more traditional ornaments. She also brought back the Nativity scene, a decoration that was previously banned in the White House under the Obama administration.
According to White House.Gov, This year’s theme is “Time Honored Traditions” and features 53 Christmas trees with over 12,000 ornaments, 18,000 feet of Christmas lights, 71 wreaths, and a 350 pound Gingerbread house. Continuing an annual tradition for over 45 years, (minus the Obama years) the White House Crèche, an 18th century terra cotta and wood nativity scene, is displayed in the East Room.
With the decorations already set in place, Trump is preparing for what he hopes will be the greatest Christmas present ever for the American people. “We’re going to give the American people a huge tax cut for Christmas — hopefully that will be a great, big, beautiful Christmas present.”
As far as the White House celebration goes, you can expect there to be ballerinas dancing in the halls, presents under the tree wrapped beautifully in the finest wrapping paper, Christmas crafts, Christmas carols being sung, and of course school children coming to visit. So far, this is gearing up to be one of the greatest White House celebrations yet.
