Despite boasting about lavishly decorating the White House this year, President Donald Trump and his family will most likely not spend the holidays in Washington D.C.

In fact, according to latest reports, the POTUS and the rest of the first family will most probably spend Christmas and the New Year’s Eve at the same place where they spent Thanksgiving — his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Palm Beach Post on Tuesday reported that Trump’s youngest son, Barron, was spotted wandering around the premises of the resort, also known as Trump's Winter White House.

According to the events director of the facility, the first lady arrived at Mar-a-Lago with her son earlier this week. This led people to speculate that Trump will also be headed to Florida before the holidays.

Although the White House has not officially announced where the president will be spending the upcoming holidays, the Federal Aviation Administration sent an alert for VIP movement in Palm Beach from Dec. 22 to Jan. 1, further fueling rumors that the POTUS was planning on heading to Mar-a-Lago soon.

Director of Legislative Affairs and Assistant to the president Marc Short told NBC's Hallie Jackson that Trump may sign the Republican tax bill into law at Mar-a-Lago, Elite Daily reported. The speculation even led people to dig up a tweet from 2013 when Trump had criticized former President Barack Obama for not spending the holidays in the White House.

“Pres. Obama is about to embark on a 17 day vacation in his ‘native’ Hawaii, putting Secret Service away from families on Christmas. Aloha!” Trump had written in the tweet.

The fact that Trump used the word “native” in the tweet also did not go amiss, since the businessman-turned-president was the leader of the "birther" conspiracy which alleged that Obama was not a U.S. citizen because he was born in Kenya. Although the Obama family was known to spend Christmas in Hawaii, they typically spend Thanksgiving at the White House, giving away food to the less fortunate.

The anticipation of the president attending the New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago — something that Trump never missed in the past — even led the facility to spike the ticket prices for this year’s event.

According to Vanity Fair, Mar-a-Lago is charging $750 for guests and $600 for members who want to attend the New Year’s fiesta, in comparison to $575 and $525 that the facility charged them respectively, last year. This means both members and guests will experience a 20 percent hike in ticket prices this year for the annual bash.

Trump Organization’s ethics adviser, Bobby Burchfield, told Politico that price hike was not due to the fact that Trump might be attending the festivities this year. “In this economy, we’re seeing prices for a lot of things go up,” he said.
