If you're inclined to think that Trump's tweet was spurred by something, it's probably fair to assume he was reacting to a recent article Vanity Fair article suggesting much the opposite. "Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!". "It says "happy holidays" all over".

"Nevertheless, critics were quick to call out the furnishings, and were particularly spooked by the all-white, tree lined hallway, likening the scene to flicks like "The Nightmare Before Christmas, ' "The Blair Witch Project" and 'The Shining.' Another juxtaposed a photo of Trump, in her white dress, to a scene featuring Jadis the White Witch from the 'Chronicles of Narnia" franchise".

Vanity Fair readers were led to believe this week that First Lady Melania Trump never wanted her current title.

President Trump vowed to put the Christ back into Christmas and based on this video that's exactly what he did - delivering on a promise to end the ongoing war on Christmas.

The Yogi Adityanath government had recently merged the Vrindavan and Mathura municipal boards to form the Mathura Nagar Nigam. Earlier, reports from polling stations across Lucknow suggested that voting was halted after machines started malfunctioning.

With the theme "Time-Honored Traditions", the halls of the White House have been fully decked with 53 Christmas trees, 71 Christmas wreaths, more than 12,000 ornaments, and a 200-pound gingerbread reproduction of the president's home, according to ABC News.

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

"Mrs. Trump's impeccable style is seen in the beautifully understated decorations and give a great nod to the First Families that came before them", Pickens said.

She is also an intern at the university's child care center and an ambassador for the nonprofit Best Buddies. The 22-year-old is from Stillwater, Minnesota - which is almost 30 miles west of Minneapolis .

Not that Christmas ever really went away, but it did temporarily disappear from the official White House "holiday" cards when Barack Obama ruled the roost.

The holiday celebrating begins later Monday with a party for the volunteer decorators and will continue well into December with receptions and parties just about every day — sometimes two a day — for the next several weeks.

This Christmas will be the first for a family tramp in the walls of the White house, so the first lady chose to take over the decoration of the official residence.

"A display of candy as part of Christmas decorations are seen in the Red Room". Fifty-six Lego gingerbread houses, one for each state and USA territory, were nestled in the branches of the trees that decorated the State Dining Room.
