Christmas at the Biltmore Thru Jan 1, 2013

Christmas at America’s largest home, where a 35-foot Christmas tree and miles of festive décor fill you with holiday cheer.

Be inspired by the friendly elegance of George and Edith Vanderbilt’s
250-room family home in Asheville, NC. Discover more about the lives of
people who visited, lived, and worked at Biltmore House during George
Vanderbilt’s day.

It only happens once a year! The Banquet Hall tree raising
to kick off the holidays. A horse-drawn wagon makes its way to the
front of Biltmore House, bringing Santa and the towering 35′ tree that
will grace the Banquet Hall.   
Watch this cool time lapse of the 35′ tree going up!  It took 40 people just to get the 35-foot Frasier Fir inside Biltmore’s
Banquet Hall. Employees hoisted the tree into place using ropes and
pulleys to secure it into position. Then a separate team added 500
lights and over 1,000 ornaments. Hours of heavy lifting and holiday
trimming are put it into this one minute of video fun.
