ASHEVILLE, NC -- (Nov. 29, 2007) -- On Tuesday Nov. 27 our local news interviewed the curator of the Biltmore House Christmas Trees. I watched in awe as workers packaged the trees in bubble wrap. The trees make their debut on GMA on Mon. Dec. 3rd.

Thanks CatPrincess for sharing with us this wonderful information of the old age Christmas traditions followed by the Biltmore family. It's really nice to know that more than a century ago, George Vanderbilt had chosen this magical season as the time to unveil his new home to family and friends and on Christmas Eve 1895, he had opened Biltmore House’s doors for a regal yuletide celebration. Wow! Biltmore House does have a festive look with such beautiful Christmas decorations that is being done once a year I guess. If I was anywhere near the place I'm sure I would have visited the place just to have a look at those awesome Christmas trees. Noted.

Thank you for your lovely comment, Ivy. The Biltmore House is open year round but they go all out for Christmas. I remember as a child my Mom and Dad taking relatives and friends to The Biltmore House when they'd come to visit us. There's an old fashioned elevator that has to be cranked to get from the bottom foyer to the bedroom on the 1 floor...and the beds are so small. We always wondered how they fit themselves on those small, squat, beds. LOL Even now I visit the Biltmore House in my mind and can see all the rooms just as they are. Guess I've been there so many times I have the house memorized, LOL

CatPrincess it's so nice to know that you had visited the Biltmore House. Sounds quite an interesting place though and it's really amazing how the traditional 19th century old house with its old fashioned elevator and cute little beds is so well kept and properly maintained going by the looks of it as is shown in the photographs.

Beautiful Biltmore ! it is unfortunate that they have to charge admission. i have a story. my last Christmas with my late twin sister > we were at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, and on a much smaller scale than the Biltmore, still glowing in traditional Christmas fashion. we did not have much money then, and fortunately for us, and everyone else, the admission was always free! we "played Eloise" - our all time favorite character- however, we didn't slide down the banisters! yes, there were those who sat in the luxurious chairs, sipping on their hot coco and enjoying the holiday delights; however we had little to spend, save our hearts delight to enjoy the sights... and oh how we laughed.... and loved each Christmas sight... many trees sponsored each one... with glorious sparkling decorations.... we laughed and took pictures then sat under the stars.... our hearts filled with love .... and that is all that mattered..... Merry Christmas and " God Bless is Everyone " .
