President Donald Trump has followed through on a small but significant promise: to start saying “Merry Christmas” again.
On Monday, Melania Trump revealed the White House Christmas decorations for this year, which contain the theme of “Time-Honored Traditions.” In a preview video of the decorations, you can see the 9-foot Christmas tree occupying the Blue Room, a Nativity scene, and the official 2017 White House Christmas card, which clearly says “Merry Christmas.”

By comparison, Barack Obama always opted for the PC-friendly, “Happy Holidays.” Indeed, the generic greeting was featured prominently on the Obamas’ 2016 Christmas card:

The very same month that the Obamas released that card, the newly elected Trump promised a crowd in Michigan, “Merry Christmas! We’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again!”

He repeated the pledge again at the Value Voters Summit in October, saying, “They don’t use the word ‘Christmas’ because it’s not politically correct. […] We’re going to start saying “Merry Christmas again.”
Unfortunately, the Trumps’ Christmas card doesn’t include a photo of the First Family. However, they’ve put their own unique touch on this year’s White House Christmas booklet, which features a cartoon version of 11-year-old Barron Trump leading guests on a tour through the White House.

Clearly, Trump isn’t just making America great again – he’s also making Christmas great again, too!
Share this with your friends and family on Facebook if you’re glad that President Trump brought back “Merry Christmas” on the official White House Christmas card!
