“Over the past four years I have had the honor to travel to some of our nation’s most beautiful landmarks and meet some of the most compassionate and patriotic American citizens,” Trump said Monday in a statement.

“From coast to acoast, the bond that all Americans share is an appreciation for our traditions, values, and history, which were the inspiration behind the decorations this year.”

In the White House’s Blue Room, an 18 ½-foot Fraser Fir from West Virginia serves as the official White House Christmas tree. It is decorated with ornaments made by students nationwide which showcase each state’s notable people, places and things.

In the State Dining Room of the White House, a gingerbread version of the White House made from more than 400 pounds of dough, gum paste, chocolate and icing includes the Rose Garden and the First Ladies’ Garden for the first time.

Volunteers from around the country helped decorate the executive mansion after Thanksgiving with 62 Christmas trees, 106 Christmas wreaths, more than 1,200 feet of garland, more than 3,200 strands of lights and 17,000 bows. The White House led the news media on a tour of the decor on Monday before a reception for the volunteers.

“Thank you to all of the staff and volunteers who worked to make sure the People’s House was ready for the holiday season,” Trump said Monday. “Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.”
