Tour This Popular Delaware Mansion For An Unforgettable Old-Fashioned Christmas

I’m not sure about you, but in my family, decorating for the holidays is an event that’s mostly fun, slightly challenging, and definitely a bonding experience for anyone brave enough to take on the task. Of course, we only have a few rooms and one tree to decorate, and we get to enjoy the fruit of our labor by the time the evening is through. At the Winterthur estate, however, decorating for the holidays takes dozens of people and a couple of weeks… because they have 175 rooms to decorate! All of the effort taken by those who work at Winterthur pays off, though, because this du Pont mansion’s Christmas display is absolutely breathtaking, year after year.
