Since it was still light out when we got there, we went to the Conservatory first. Each room was decked out with lights and Christmas trees. There were so many people that you couldn't just wander around; we had to follow a marked path through the rooms.

Then we made our way outside. In addition to all the lights, there were also carolers, a model train set, fire pits, and spiked hot chocolate at various locations around the grounds.
Some of the trees were just wrapped with lights around the trunks, but others were wrapped all the way to the tip-tops of the branches.
Floating "trees" dotted a couple of the lakes.
My pictures really don't do this place justice. It's just something you have to see for yourself. A Longwood Christmas is perfect for kids and adults; it'll put everyone in the holiday spirit!
