Another new touch are glistening wintry branches lining an East Wing hallway that leads guests to a tree decorated with the Trump family's official Christmas ornament, a gold-toned bauble featuring the presidential coat of arms surrounded by a wreath of holly.

In 2017, that Christmas spirit is now on full display at the White House.

Nearby was the Trump family Christmas card, along with cards from past presidents.

"That stunningly handsome gold star tree by our stunningly lovely and heart of gold First Lady is a wonderful, touching tribute to our military men and women and a reminder to those of us who are being protected by their service". The theme of the White House holiday decorations this year is 'Time-Honored Traditions'. "@WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate!"

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday slammed CNN for boycotting the White House Christmas party, saying the news network is "doing a disservice". The theme for this year is "Time-Honored Traditions", and included in that is a handsome nativity scene. "Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!"

The decorations were designed by the first lady in honor of the 200 years of holiday traditions that have occurred at the presidential residence.

Warriors to play without Curry, Durant vs. Kings
The 33-year-old has played in 18 of Golden State's 20 games this seaosn, averaging 6.3 points-per-game. Curry has a right hand contusion, and Durant has been nursing a lingering sprained left ankle.

"Are you the first lady?" asked one incredulous boy who then moved in for a hug.

"Tell her husband to show the same respect to ALL gold star families and vets. he has disdain for Muslim gold star families and POWs, and tell their spouses they knew what they signed up for after dodged the drafty not once but 4 times with fake bone spurs and thinks private hi priced military school is the same thing as real military service", one reader commented.

That greeting is a change from the years when Barack Obama and his family were living in the White House.

The first lady's office previewed the decorations for journalists on Monday after more than 150 volunteers from 29 states spent 1,600 hours during the long holiday weekend decking the White House halls.

The White House said she personally chose every detail of the decor.

More than 25,000 people are expected to visit the White House over the next few weeks.
