The First Family is celebrating their second Christmas in the White House.  This year’s theme, “American Treasures” honors the unique heritage of America.  Designed by First Lady Melania Trump, the White House shines with the spirit of patriotism.  This home, held in trust for all Americans, displays the many splendors found across our great Nation.

 

 

In the East Wing, the Gold Star Family tree returns.  Decorated by Gold Star families, this tree honors all our troops and families who have sacrificed greatly to protect our freedoms.  Gold stars and patriotic ribbon decorate the tree and visitors are encouraged to write messages to their loved ones who are on duty or abroad on the digital tablets provided.

More than 40 topiary trees line the East colonnade as guests make their way toward the East Garden Room, where the First Family Christmas card and ornament are on display.  The Library remembers some of America’s most cherished authors, housing over 2,700 American classics.  Four trees have been tucked away in each corner of the Library displaying the White House Historical Association’s 2018 ornament honoring President Harry S. Truman.

The Vermeil room displays two trees that sparkle in hues of blues and golds amongst the vermeil on display for all to see.  Inside the China Room are three tables, all replicas from previous state dinners using pieces from the White House permanent collection.  They highlight different eras of state dinners.  The Theodore Roosevelt Administration, John F. Kennedy Administration, and Donald J. Trump Administration are all represented.

The East Room highlights the diversity and ingenuity of American architecture and design with four custom mantelpieces showcasing the skylines of New York City, St. Louis, Chicago, and San Francisco.  72 handmade paper ornaments representing six regions across America hang from four 14-foot Noble fir trees.  For the 51st year, the White House Crèche will also be on display.

As one makes their way through the Green Room, Americans are reminded of the country’s bounty and harvest.  A variety of fruits, vegetables, and grains adorn the tree centered in the room, as well as the garland on the mantel.  In the Blue Room, the official White House Christmas tree measures a soaring 18 feet tall and is dressed in over 500 feet of blue velvet ribbon embroidered in gold with each State and territory.  Moving into the Red Room, guests will be able to celebrate children through the décor, which displays ways in which children can excel in their own path.

The State Dining Room is a celebration of our country’s national symbols, including the bald eagle, the rose, and the oak tree.  The space is also host to this year’s gingerbread house, showcasing the full expanse of the National Mall: the Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, and, of course, the White House.

Crossing into the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall, patriotism, the heart of America, takes center stage with more than 14,000 red ornaments hanging from 29 trees.  The choice of red is an extension of the pales, or stripes, found in the presidential seal designed by our Founding Fathers.  It’s a symbol of valor and bravery.

“This is a joyous time of year when we decorate the White House for the Christmas Season,” said First Lady Melania Trump. “Our theme honors the heart and spirit of the American people.  Thank you to the many volunteers and staff who worked hard to decorate the halls of the People’s House in Christmas cheer.  On behalf of my family, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

Throughout the month of December, the White House will host more than 100 open houses and many receptions.  More than 30,000 visitors will walk the halls taking part in public tours.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Participated in the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, Washington, DC – USA – 11/28/2018 – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

Remarks by President Trump at the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Issued on:

 

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you.  Thank you very much.  And, Ryan, I want to thank you for doing such a beautiful job all throughout the season.  And welcome everyone.  Merry Christmas.  Special time of the year.

Melania and I are thrilled to be here today as we celebrate one of the nation’s most cherished traditions: the lighting of the National Christmas Tree.

Tonight’s ceremony is only possible because of the hard work of the many talented individuals.  They were working late at night.  They were working early in the morning.  They were working all the time.  And my sincere thanks to everyone at the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation.  Thank you very much.  Appreciate it.  (Applause.)

And let me also extend my deep appreciation to all of tonight’s wonderful entertainers.  There’s great talent.  They’re going on to big things, many of them.  I’ve seen them and they are something very special.  Thank you very much.  That was a great job tonight.  (Applause.)

And this includes one very special group that has topped Billboard charts multiple times: the Dominican Sisters, who I met backstage, from Ann Arbor, Michigan.  (Applause.)

And a very special recognition to the students who designed stunning ornaments to decorate 56 different Christmas trees here in President’s Park.  Thank you, students.  I hear you out there.  Thank you very much.  (Applause.)

And in — when they were doing the 56 trees, there were one for each state and the territories in our magnificent country.  We have truly a great, great country.  We’re very proud of it, and we love it deeply.  (Applause.)

For Christians all across our nation, around the world, this is a sacred season that begins 2,000 years ago when Jesus Christ was born.  An angel declared to the shepherds tending their flocks, “Behold, I bring you good tidings, great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is a born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”  (Applause.)  There in Bethlehem, Mary and Joseph held in their hands the son of God; the light of the world; and, through Him, the promise of eternal salvation.

No matter one’s faith or beliefs, the Christmas season reflects all that is best in the American spirit.  This is a time of the year for rejoicing with our family and friends, for spreading charity and goodwill in our commitment all over this country in all of our communities, and for giving thanks for all of the blessings in our lives.

We are especially thankful for the countless Americans who have given their time and passion to help those in need.  Here in the audience today are a number of extraordinary foster families and guardians joined by the beautiful children they have welcomed into their homes.  And beautiful children they are.  Your devotion inspires us all.  To every child in foster care: You are the precious loved one and gift of God.  Thank you.  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Very, very special.

At this time of the year, we renew the bonds of affection between our fellow citizens, and we awaken the faith in our hearts that calls each of us to action.  As we gather loved ones, our thoughts turn to those who are rebuilding their lives after devastating wildfires, destructive hurricanes, and terrible tragedy.

We are one American family.  We hurt together, we heal together, and we will always pull through together.  This is the United States of America.  We are the best in the world, and there’s nobody close.  (Applause.)

Tonight, we honor the first responders who risked their lives to save the lives of others.  And all of America sends our profound gratitude to the incredible men and women of the United States Military. (Applause.)  And I’m proud to say our military right now is stronger than ever before.  (Applause.)

Their families are all our families, and we thank them so much for their greatness and for the incredible job they do.  Thank you to the United States Military.  Thank you very much.  (Applause.)

We ask God to watch over this nation’s heroes, and to shed his almighty grace upon our nation.  And we pray that America’s light will shine more brightly and stronger than ever.  And it will.

On behalf of Melania and myself and the entire Trump family — many of whom are with us tonight — I want to again wish you all a very, very Merry Christmas.  May this Christmas season bring peace to your hearts, warmth to your homes, cheer to your spirit, and joy to the world.  Merry Christmas, everyone.  Merry Christmas and God bless you.  Thank you.  Thank you very much.  (Applause.)
