Donald Trump has something of a vendetta against celebrating the "holidays".

He's very clear on the matter - it's 'Christmas', not the 'holidays'.

In 2012 he tweeted:

He said on the 2015 campaign trail:

I believe in God. I believe in the Bible. I'm a Christian.

He said earlier this year:

They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct.

We’re saying Merry Christmas again.

Melania seemingly bucked this declaration when she tweeted the images of herself decorating the White House for what she called

the holidays.

And now Ivanka's contradicted Trump's Christmas rule.

Ivanka Trump, formerly a Presbyterian Christian, converted to Judaism in 2009 when she married the real estate mogul Jared Kushner, who follows Modern Orthodox Judaism.

She also tweeted to wish her followers a Happy Hannukah, with a portrait of her family.

In November, Mr Trump celebrated his first National ChristmasTree Lighting ceremony as President, saying in a speech in front of the White House tree:

Today is a day that I’ve been looking very much forward to all year long.

It is one that we have heard, we speak and we dream about. Now, as President of the United States, it’s my tremendous honour to finally wish America and the world a very Merry Christmas.
