Guests at the Christmas party at the White House were informed that Trump would not join them or make remarks after losing in the Supreme Court.
Maggie Haberman tweeted:
At the Christmas party at the White House, guests were informed about 10 minutes ago that the President would not come to them to comment.

In other words, Trump is sulking in his bedroom and refusing to come out after the Supreme Court refused to overturn the presidential election for him. Trump has done this stunt before. He also refused to come downstairs and greet newly elected Republicans of the House when they were brought to him by the White House.
Trump would rather stay in his bedroom, likely on the phone while watching Fox News. One can only imagine Trump working furiously on his cell phone with his friends planning what his next step might be before electoral college confirm Biden's victory on Monday.
It's well documented that the Trumps aren't big supporters of Christmas:

Donald Trump really thought the Supreme Court would save him. Instead, they created the conditions for him to be prosecuted for his financial crimes.
No wonder Trump is sulking. He's likely in bed sucking Diet Cokes down, worried about his possible criminal conviction.
Trump pouts and refuses to celebrate Christmas.
