Bright Christmas lights and colorful displays are always a beautiful site, but the decorations at Graceland are especially unique because the holiday traditions and decorations that Elvis loved and enjoyed are kept alive.

Elvis loved Christmas and was very fond of decorating for the holiday season. It was a tradition to put up decorations after Thanksgiving and leave them up until around the time of his birthday on January 8th. Elvis began decorating Graceland in the late 1950s and on the front lawn he first had a large Santa complete with sleigh and reindeer with a message that read "Merry Christmas to All, Elvis". He soon changed his decorations in the 1960s which included a life size nativity scene as well as lighted aluminum trees that stood at the front of the mansion, and the driveway of Graceland was also outlined with hundreds of blue lights.

Today, Graceland continues those Christmas traditions by authentically showcasing both displays as well as using Elvis' original decorations. The fabulous lights of Graceland are turned on the friday evening after Thanksgiving at approximately 5:45PM. The interior of the mansion is decorated as well, with ornaments and displays including Colorful poinsettias which add Christmas flare to the inside of the mansion and of course Christmas trees which are located in several rooms. All the festive decorations both inside and out remain in place through Elvis' Birthday Celebration in early January.

During Christmas in Graceland, you can enjoy all the the beautiful lights and decorations that celebrate the holiday season. Seeing all the colorful displays and fun festive decorations will put you in the Christmas spirit.

Elvis Presley's Graceland Platinum Tour
I travelled all the way from ireland to memphis to visit graceland. Any true fan will know that this visit is more that your average holiday trip - it is rely an experience. Visiting the house of elvis, a person who had enthralled me for over 30 years, was something i had hoped for for many years - never rely expecting to get there. I spent nearly 5 hours at graceland - taking in every detail of every room - it was totally fascinating - seeing the rooms where elvis ate, played and recorded. The museum out back is full of fascinating artifacts - but what stopped me in my tracks was when i came to his graveside - i went cold finding it hard to believe that i was there - standing at the grave of elvis presley. Others passed by - but to them i could see it was just another stop on a tour - to a true elvis fan it was something incredible. To any elvis fan who has ever thought of going - i say just do it - what ever it costs it is worth every cent. While in memphis the sun studios tour is also great - the staff give a real good talk, you get to see everything you want and you dont get rushed out of the place. I took a drive to tupelo next day and again its well worth it - the house and museum are excellent. Just do it - he was and is the king - its the trip of a lifetime.

Elvis Presley's Graceland Platinum Experience
EVen though the upper leVel of the house is not open to the public, the lower leVel & the grounDs are. The house has been restoreD to the conDition it was in 1977. There are couple of rooms (racquetball court) with his suits, golD & platinum recorDs, & eVen the t.V. He gave his parents in 1975. The swimming pool in back of the house is still there with the garDen where elvis, his mother, father, & granDmother are burieD. It was raining lightly & they haD (free to use) umbrella's, conveniently locateD, if neeDeD. Across the street (elvis presley blvD....) are a car / tractor /motorcycle museum, uniforms, & suits. There are 2 restaurants, & 11, count 'em, 11 gift shops, with Different elvis memorabilia, post carDs, c.D.'s, pins, shirts & mints. We took the free shuttle to sun studio, which was an amazing experience in itself, everyone was very helpful. I would recommend graceland to anyone who is interested in elvis presley.
