The Trumps' first White House Christmas portrait has been revealed on First Lady Melania Trump's Twitter account, showing the couple standing side-by-side holding hands amid a winter wonderland of artificial snow, Christmas trees and flags.

According to Town and Country, the photo was snapped in the Cross Hall of the White House on Dec. 5 and features two of 53 Christmas trees that have been set up in the presidential home, with the official tree being a 19 and a half feet Balsam fir towering in the Grand.

The theme for this year's White House Christmas decoration display is "Time-Honored Traditions," which Melanie Trump unveiled last month, Fox News said.

The First Lady seems to be enjoying the festive season, having personally selected the decorations to be displayed and tweeting about it.

Donald Trump has been campaigning to end the "war on Christmas" and vowed that the U.S. would be saying "Merry Christmas" once again under his administration, Business Insider noted.

"You go to stores, you don't see the word Christmas," Trump said last year, per The Washington Post. "It says 'happy holidays' all over. I say, 'Where's Christmas?' I tell my wife, 'Don't go to those stores.'. . . I want to see Christmas."

Melania Trump seems to be taking cues from her husband, taking a more traditional approach to the White House Christmas theme and including the phrase "Merry Christmas" in her tweets.
