— -- The Trump family seems to be feeling the festive spirit of the Christmas season down in Florida.

First lady Melania Trump posted a cheeky selfie on Twitter this morning, sharing a picture of herself using a Santa hat filter and shimmering reindeer with the caption "#MerryChristmas."

The first family is spending the holiday at their Florida retreat in Mar-a-Lago, referred to as the "Winter White House." Last night, the president and his wife attended a Christmas Eve service at the Palm Beach church where they were married and were greeted by applause.

Guests at Mar-a-Lago had a wide array of food options for their Christmas Eve dinner, including turkey, beef tenderloin, cornbread, creamy kale, popovers, mashed potatoes and turkey gravy, various local vegetable dishes, a seafood display including local fish and shellfish as well as a variety of desserts.

On Christmas Eve, the first lady wrote that she was "looking forward to helping kids track Santa today with @NoradSanta! Wishing everyone a very Merry #Christmas Eve!"

She also shared a picture that showed her making Christmas calls with the president, writing that they "had fun" participating in the annual tradition.
