The Trump White House is about to be all decked out for Christmas — see what it looked like last year

Every year, the White House gets decked out in elaborate decorations to celebrate the holidays, and the Trumps put their own personal touch on the Christmas flair.

The official theme in 2017 was "Time-Honored Traditions," meant to pay homage to over 200 years of White House holiday celebrations.

On Monday, the Trumps received the massive Christmas tree that will stand on the grounds, and thousands of volunteers started transforming the White House into a winter wonderland. By December, they will welcome guests to see the decorations.

First lady Melania Trump unveiled the first transformation under her tenure last November. This is what the White House looked like for Christmas last year.

Trump posted a behind-the-scenes video of all the White House has to offer this year. "The decorations are up!" she wrote. "@WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate! Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!"
