The Holidays Begin at BiltmoreBiltmore's Christmas tree is truly a spectacle each year. Last week, Biltmore raised a 35-foot Fraser fir inside the Vanderbilt mansion. The 25-year old tree was delivered by horse and carriage, just as it would have arrived when the Vanderbilts lived here. Using a system of ropes and pulleys, crews hoisted the majestic giant with ease before decorating with holiday ornaments.
