Transforming The Breakers hotel and home on Palm Seashore for Christmas begins after Thanksgiving.

Two evergreen trees, 18 feet high, and garland decorate the lobby.

Decking these halls – and loggias, and clubhouse, and courtyards – can take 11 months of preparing and 6 evenings of non-stop operate when the guests at The Breakers are nestled all comfortable in their beds, or are at the very least settling in for the day.

The Florentine-style fountain at The Breakers Palm Beach is illuminated red and green December 11, 2020 in Palm Beach. The Breakers team spent six days decorating the luxury resort in Palm Beach.

No 1 would want to spoil the magic that delivers ginormous Christmas trees, a football discipline-value of garland and center-schooler-sized nutcrackers to a single of the most elegant and historic lodges in the country.

It would not do to have every person witness the decorating elves climbing the virtually century aged building possibly, reported Chris Casey, who has had a hand in the getaway makeover for 20 decades and been in demand for the very last 7 or eight.

“It truly is the largest point I have to do each and every yr,” Casey stated. 

The Xmas holiday has a specific position in The Breakers’ heritage.
