It just isn't Christmas without Elvis Presley's voice....
Graceland's beautiful Living Room just as it was...
I used to produce a public show at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis at Christmas Time. Always made a point to go and take (drag) my staff to see Graceland. We waited for the tram in the shopping area to take us across the street to Graceland. We sat under a heated awning with Elvis Christmas Music piped in overhead. It played the same short cd over and over and I guess it is permanently burned into my holiday psyche. Silver Bells over and over :)
Elvis and his custom made 15 ft sofa.
My favorite room is the living room with it's giant 15 ft long white couch. Notice Elvis had the drapes changed at Christmas each year to red from the normal blue.

The lights around the grounds are so lovely. Elvis loved the holidays and the Graceland caretakers continue his tradition to this day.
Elvis Presley's Graceland is the second most visited house in the United States. It is preserved exactly as it was when Elvis lived here, complete with the Jungle Room and shag carpeting. Elvis' is buried here in the Graceland Meditation Garden by the pool.
After years of hearing Elvis' Christmas album it is just nor Christmas to me without hearing Elvis singing "Silver Bells" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas"
I thought I'd make a little photo tour for my readers who have never been to Memphis. Graceland really is lovely this time of year.
