Now President Trump has weighed in.

First lady Melania Trump was at the helm of the 95th annual National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony on Thursday night, flipping the switch after the president led the crowd in a countdown from ten.

The "Time-Honored Traditions" theme, which a White House press release said pays "respect to 200 years of holiday traditions" at the presidential home, features the usual giant Christmas tree and other festive touches.

The record for the number of trees in the White House was held for many years by the Eisenhower administration when 26 trees filled every floor of the house.

Trump has repeatedly taken shots at Obama for not wishing the country a "Merry Christmas", both before and after he took office.

The 350-pound (160-kilogram) gingerbread house in the State Dining Room offers a view of the White House from the South Lawn, with wreaths on every window and a US flag flying from its sugary rooftop.

Among the Christmas, standards are an 18-by-6-foot (5.5-by-1.8-meter) Balsam fir from Wisconsin in the traditional spot in the Blue Room, decorated with ornaments bearing the seals of every state and USA territory.

The White House said she personally chose every detail of the decor.

The holiday celebrations get underway Monday with a party for the volunteer decorators and will continue into December with receptions and parties - sometimes two a day - for the next several weeks, including a party Friday for the news media. There is also a gingerbread house, candy, and arts and crafts for the more than 25,000 visitors expected to pass through during the holiday season.

US President Donald Trump has lit the national Christmas tree, located behind the White House, in a ceremony followed by a performance of the 1960s-hit pop band, The Beach Boys.
