The theme of this year's decorations, chosen by the First Lady, is "Time-Honoured Traditions" - a nod to 200 years of festivities at the White House.

New this year are wreaths hanging from the exterior of every window, glistening wintry branches lining an East Wing walkway and a tree decorated with the Trump family's official Christmas ornament.
The family did away with the Obama family's slogan for the card - which wished Americans a 'joyous holiday season'.
The slogan aligns with Trump's campaign promise to 'say Merry Christmas again'.
While the Trump's card didn't include a family photo, the young Trump made an appearance in an animated version of the white HouseChristmas booklet that is given out to tourists who visit during the holiday season. Mrs. Trump has also invited children and students from a nearby military base to come see the decorations and work on holiday arts and crafts.
But Melania Trump's vision didn't quite capture the traditional holiday spirit she was hoping for, according to Twitter.
Among the Christmas standards is an 18-foot (about 5.5-meter) fir tree in its traditional spot in the Blue Room, decorated with ornaments bearing the seals of every state and USA territory. President Donald Trump's third wife has decorated the White House for the holidays, The Hillreported Monday morning. When former social secretaries gave a luncheon to welcome Ms. Rogers earlier this year, one participant said, she surprised them by suggesting the Obamas were planning a "non-religious Christmas" - hardly a surprising idea for an administration making a special effort to reach out to other faiths.
Throughout the month of December, more than 25,000 visitors will take part in White House public tours.
Last year Trump said that, "You go to stores; you don't see the word Christmas".
"Ornaments are hung on a Christmas tree in the Red Room at the White House". Fifty-six Lego gingerbread houses, one for each state and USA territory, were nestled in the branches of the trees that decorated the State Dining Room.
