President Trump’s first Christmas card was revealed this Monday during Melania’s White House Christmas decorations tour.
“Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,” the card reads, signed by Donald Trump, Melania Trump and their son Barron.

Trump’s Christmas card is much different than Obama’s Christmas cards, the words “Merry Christmas” were absent from the Obama’s annual Christmas cards, which frustrated the conservative families.
The Obama’s chose nonspiritual approach in their Christmas cards, wishing “Happy Holidays” to the recipients.

“Happy holidays,” the Obama’s 2016 card said. “As our family reflects on our many happy years spent in the White House, we are grateful for the friends we’ve made, the joy we’ve shared, and the gifts of kindness we’ve received. We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year.”
Sarah Palin, a former Republican Vice President candidate, had a problem with Obama refusing to mention Christmas in the 2016 card.

Obama wasn’t the only president to omit the word “Christmas” in the White House Christmas card since President Calvin Coolidge started the annual tradition in 1927.
First was former President Herbert Hoover who left out the word “Christmas,” writing in 1929: “The President and Mrs. Hoover cordially reciprocate your holiday greetings.”
Then in 1954 former President Dwight D. Eisenhower also omitted the word writing: “Season’s Greetings.”
And the third president was former President John F. Kennedy who in 1961 wrote: “Season’s Greetings.”
However, Trump promised that he will bring back the Christmas to the White House Christmas card.
“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,” Donald Trump stated in October at the Values Voter Summit.
“You go to department stores and they’ll say ‘Happy New Year,’ or they’ll say other things and it’ll be red,” he continued. “They’ll have it painted.”
“Well guess what? We’re saying Merry Christmas again.”
