(24 Dec 2018) US President Donald Trump attended worship services on Christmas Eve. The President and his wife, first lady Melania Trump , arrived at Washington National Cathedral for a late service on Monday night.

The service is described as "one of most beautiful services of the year" on the cathedral's website.

Trump and Melania last year attended a Christmas Eve service at an Episcopal church in Palm Beach, Fla., CBS New York reported.

This year, Trump has remained in D.C. instead of going to Mar-a-Lago amid the partial government shutdown, which began on Friday.

The first lady flew back from Florida earlier on Monday to join him for Christmas Eve.

The Trumps for the first part of the evening joined the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) call center remotely from the White House, taking questions about Santa's whereabouts from U.S. children.

Trump raised eyebrows when he asked one of the children calling Santa Clause at NORAD whether he still believed in Santa.
