Monday, December 25 was a joyous day for millions of families around the world as we celebrated Christmas and the birth of Jesus. This year, President Trump and First Lady Melania celebrated the holiday much like many others do: with their family.
On Christmas morning, President Trump and Melania released a video to say “Merry Christmas” to the country.
First Lady Melania talked about the generosity that surrounds this season. She said that “we see the best of America and the soul of the American people” as children pack boxes of goodies to send to service members and various communities.
Trump said, “In this season of joy, we spend time with our families, we renew our bonds of love and goodwill between our citizens and, most importantly, we celebrate the miracle of Christmas.”
The president continued, “This good news is the greatest Christmas gift of all, the reason for our joy and the true source of our hope.”
Just before Christmas, President Trump, First Lady Melania, and Barron Trump headed to Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. According to US News, Tiffany Trump was seen getting off of Air Force One in Florida as well, and Donald Trump Jr. posted photos with most of the family for Christmas Eve dinner.
After dinner, President Trump and Melania attended a Christmas Eve service at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach. The couple was married at that church in 2005.
On Christmas day, the Trumps spent time together as a family. They also had a lavish holiday meal at Mar-a-Lago including the famous “Mr. Trump’s Wedge Salad,” other salads and soups, turkey, char-crusted filet mignon, seared foie gras, braised short ribs, pan seared seabass, and diver scallops.
For dessert, the family chose between Piña Colada Crème Burlèe, Brilliant Cheesecake, Black Forest Trifle Martini, Bread Pudding, and Trump Chocolate Cake.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that while he was with family celebrating Christmas, President Trump still had some work to do. She briefed him on the bombing in Afghanistan which sadly claimed at least six lives.
Overall, it seemed that the First Family had a joy-filled holiday. Did you have a good Christmas with family and friends? Let us know! In other recent news, fans are mourning the loss of a "Sound of Music" star.
