From Biltmore, a new video just released yesterday:

Christmas at Biltmore is in full swing as hundreds gather to see the annual raising of Biltmore’s Banquet Hall tree. There are between 30 and 40 people who carry this fantastic tree into the house then staff from Biltmore’s Floral and Engineering Services work together to put it in place.

There are 500 lights, 500 gift-wrapped packages and 500 ornaments on the tree and It is the largest of the 68 decorated trees in Biltmore House. That’s the most we’ve ever had in the House for Christmas.
