Jill Biden, the First Lady of the United States has received the official White House Christmas tree on Monday, and people are loving it just as much as she is.

Collecting the White House Christmas tree isn’t a new tradition at all.

In fact, it dates back to 1889 when Benjamin Harrison placed the first tree in the Yellow Room; exciting.

Every year since, marking the beginning of a Christmas at the White House has always been something not only the residents cherish, but people around America, as well.

This year, seeing the First Lady Jill Biden collect the Christmas tree for the White House was just too wholesome.

And she even made the occasion even merrier by wearing a splash of red along with a wonderful smile.

“Look how beautiful this is,” Jill Biden exclaimed, as per PBS News Hour. “It is beautiful. It is magnificent, really,” she continued on.

And, it really was magnificent. That’s probably why Hunter Biden, his wife, and their son joined to watch the ceremony, too.

The Christmas tree is an eighteen-and-a-half-foot Fraser Fir, and according to News Week, was presented by Rusty and Beau Estes, from Peak Farms of Jefferson.

But now, we have to wait to see the result of the glorious decorations.

Not for long, though.

Jill Biden has said that we get to enjoy the decorations on Monday next week, displayed in the Blue Room. And honestly, we can’t wait.

This Christmas at the White Hosue will certainly be very different than the last 2 years, as well.

With Jill Biden being a lot more cheerful than the previous First Lady, Melania Trump.

As reported by News Week, a former aide had recorded Melania unknowingly giving her opinion on Christmas, and you won’t be sorry you kept on scrolling.

“Who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff?” she asked. “Give me a f****** break. I’m working like a—my a** off at Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right? Correct?”

At least First Lady Jill Biden is a little more cheery this time around…

And if you want to see Biden collect the tree for yourselves, here it is.
