A Special Christmas Wish For You, Vintage Elvis Style


Elvis White Christmas Tree

Wherever Elvis was, he always tried to come home for Christmas. Starting in November until just after his birthday (January 8th), Graceland would be all decked out for the Holiday season.

Blue lights lined the driveway, a life size nativity set was set up, the drapes in every window were changed to red velvet and the house was flowing head to toe in Christmas cheer. The sound of Christmas carols filled the air as family and friends gathered around the piano to join in with Elvis.
