First lady Melania Trump shared a playful and festive selfie on Twitter Monday morning, which showed her posing beneath a Santa hat filter, golden reindeer and with the caption "#MerryChristmas."

The Slovenian-born first lady got into the festive spirit by posting the Christmas selfie Dec. 25.

After sharing the Christmas selfie on social media, she did not receive the best responses from Twitter users all around the world. Melania captioned the photo "Merry Christmas," and was seen using a Santa filter in the photo. However, the use of heavy-filters by the first lady on her face was not quite appreciated by the users and they were not in any mood to forgive Melania for her actions.

The first family is spending the week between Christmas and New Year’s at their "winter White House," the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, where President Donald Trump has so far spent his time playing golf, offering holiday messages on social media, and boasting about his own accomplishments on Twitter.

Melania posted the selfie on Twitter early Monday morning, after the president and first lady spent Christmas Eve attending church in West Palm Beach, Florida. They attended the Christmas Eve services at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea.

Melania and Trump also spoke to children and members of the military by phone. The White House released a photo of the first couple telephoning children across the U.S. as they consulted with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Santa tracker on Christmas Eve, as part of the traditional NORAD tracking of Santa’s trip around the globe.

This was not the first time Melania was trolled by Twitter users because of her tweets. Fox News reported in November that the first lady was mocked over White House Christmas decorations and her outfits. The first lady decorated the White House for Christmas with the theme "Time-Honored Traditions."

However, several users on Twitter were quick to observe that the White House decoration for Christmas this year appeared to look like the snaps from the horror films such as "The Shining," "The Blair Witch Project," and "The Nightmare Before Christmas."

The Santa-hat selfie, which was retweeted about thousand times since it was posted, followed a series of images and other tweets showing the first couple getting into the Christmas spirit. Late Sunday night, President Trump also took some credit for bringing back the phrase, Merry Christmas.

"People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again," the president tweeted shortly before 10 p.m. EST.

Trump shared another Christmas message on Monday as well, where he posted a video on Twitter in which he said: "In the season of joy, we spend time with our families, we renew the bonds of love and goodwill between our citizens and most importantly we celebrate the miracle of Christmas."

The president tweeted again Monday evening saying: "I hope everyone is having a great Christmas, then tomorrow it's back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated!"
