You Can Watch the Biltmore’s Christmas Tree Raising Online This Year

North Carolina’s Biltmore Estate is the largest home in the U.S. With that title, comes quite a Christmas celebration and a ton of decorations. This year, you can watch the raising of the Christmas tree at the historic house online.

On November 4, the famous home will host a screening of a documentary-style film about the process of finding and installing its legendary 35-foot Fraser fir. The virtual screening isn’t just due to the pandemic, though. This year marks the 125th Christmas at the home, and the film is a celebration of the festivities.

To give people an inside look at holidays at the Biltmore, the special takes viewers through planning for the tree and its installation at the famous home.

According to a press release from the historic property, the Christmas at Biltmore: Virtual Tree Raising will air live Nov. 4 at 5 p.m. EST on the home’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.

If you feel comfortable traveling, the estate will still host some of its indoor Christmas events. From Nov. 6-Jan. 10, the historic site will hold its annual Christmas at Biltmore celebrations. You can choose a day- or nighttime experience, and prices range from $114-$334.

If you plan to stay home this holiday season, though, the Biltmore’s virtual Christmas tree raising is the perfect way to kick off the season.
