It's the most wonderful time of the year at the White House.

The Trump family is celebrating the Christmas season - their first at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue - with a 19 1/2-foot Balsam fir tree, a Christmas card and many more special events and decorations.

First Lady Melania and 11-year-old Barron Trump accepted the official Christmas tree from a Wisconsin farm and it was placed in the White House Blue Room on Nov. 20.

Silent Night Evergreens, located in Endeavor, Wisconsin, won the 2017 National Christmas Tree Association contest to present the tree in a horse-drawn wagon.

The farm's owners, Jim and Diane Chapman, won the contest in 1998 and 2003 as well. The NCTA has presented the official White House Christmas tree since 1966.

The tree is adorned with the First Family's official Christmas ornament:

A separate and much larger tree was driven across the country by trucker Larry Spiekermeier to stand outside the U.S. Capitol.

The 79-foot-tall Engelmann Spruce was driven from Montana's Kootenai National Forest on a 3,460-mile journey to Washington, D.C.

Whitewood Transport was selected from over 500,000 U.S. trucking companies to haul this year's tree.

On November 27, the first lady shared a video of the fully-decorated White House.

"The decorations are up! @WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate! Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!" she wrote on Twitter.

After the decorating was complete, the first lady welcomed children from Joint Base Andrews to the East Room.

"She seriously looks like an angel," one youngster could be heard saying as she walked in.

Not all were happy with Mrs. Trump's decor choices, with some on social media criticizing a darkened hallway and calling it creepy.

"The East Colonnade has become the most terrifying domestic space in America," the Daily Beast wrote.

The following day, the White House released its Christmas card, which wishes a "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."

The card is signed by President Trump, the First Lady Melania Trump and their 11-year-old son Barron.

The wording on the card is notable after Trump stated many times during his campaign his affinity for the phrase "Merry Christmas," rather than "Happy Holidays."

President Barack Obama's holiday cards notably left out the phrase in favor of the more generic greeting.

Trump declared at the Values Voters Summit in October that the phrase would be brought back.

“We’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct," he said to cheers. “You go to department stores and they’ll say 'Happy New Year,' or they’ll say other things and it’ll be red, they’ll have it painted."

"Well, guess what? We’re saying 'Merry Christmas' again."

At a speech in Missouri on tax reform, President Trump detoured to highlight a "Merry Christmas" sign on the stage.

On Thursday, the president and the first lady lit the National Christmas Tree on the White House Ellipse.

"We want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year," Trump said. "Have unbelievable holidays."
