The Most Wonderful Time.
Today was one of those grey overcast days, that despite it being 58 degrees out, looked like it could snow at any minute. I love those kinds of days, and knew it would be perfect for going to the Biltmore to see all the Christmas decorations. We arrived at 3pm, just as most of the other guests were leaving; the best time for me to visit. We walked in the house and noticed how happy and somewhat giddy all the staff were. Presents were stacked in the atrium, and an organist was playing Christmas music on the massive pipe organ in the dining hall, and tables were being set up around the house. I correctly guessed that the employee Christmas party is this evening; such fun! We toured the house admiring the extravagant holiday decor and the 65 decorated trees. We left just as the house was closing to the public, and people were arriving for the party; luminaries had been placed along the drive, and throughout the grounds. How fun it would be to go to that party!
