A dad from West Virginia named Travis Collis recently shared a video of how he decorates his home for Christmas. It’s filled with baubles and nutcrackers, as well as 15 different trees. Each year his sons help him decorate the trees. The decorations are colorful, decorated with elves and nutcrackers, Mickey Mouse and hundreds of darts.
Travis Collis’ home
Travis Collis’ home in Mercer County, West Virginia, has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland. Collis shared footage of his home decorated for the holidays on Facebook. From life-size Nutcrackers to garlands and elves, Collis has gone all out for the holiday season. Collis has 15 Christmas trees in his home, each one decorated differently. His sons decorate their own Christmas trees each year.
Collis has a Christmas-themed Elf Spa and Nutcracker figures in each room, in addition to the Christmas tree. A third tree is also a highlight, along with a fireplace decorated with lights and animated ornaments. The video has received more than 40 million views and has been shared more than 696,000 times on YouTube.
The Greenbrier: Holiday traditions
Nancy Conte welcomes guests to The Greenbrier year after year with the tradition of decorating the 700-room resort for the holiday season. The tradition started 30 years ago when she decorated her lobby tree and began decorating the hotel with traditional decorations. Today, there are more than 60 Christmas trees, and each one is decorated uniquely. Guests can also enjoy a variety of holiday activities.
Betty and Robert met at The Greenbrier while working there over 40 years ago. Robert began his career as an archivist. However, he also took on other roles around the hotel. The couple remembers a time when winter was considered “off season” at the hotel because the original cottages and tents were not heated.
The Greenbrier is a popular West Virginia holiday destination. The 60 Spectacular Holiday Days of Holiday Cheer include over 100 Christmas trees, chocolate creations and twinkling lights. There is also a special Christmas tree lighting. You can also enjoy homemade cocoa and carolers as well as shopping at the 30 on-site shops. Many of the resort’s shops feature hand-blown glass and custom-designed furniture.
The Greenbrier Historical Society will host a holiday home tour Sunday, December 9. This event will feature the Second North House, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hanna. Fourth Lewisburg Garden Club will decorate this home in holiday spirit. Tickets are available for $10 per person or $20 for a family of four.
