Christmas comes early at the Carolina Hotel.

Why, you ask, do we start decorating before Thanksgiving is even over? The answer is simple: It takes nearly a month to get the historic dwelling ready for the holiday season. There are 25 trees to decorate, 2,500 feet of garland to hang and dozens upon dozens of bows to tie.

The decorating got underway Nov. 3. Here’s a sneak peak at how far our team has gotten in two weeks.
