Christmas at The Peabody Hotel

by The 100 Companies

Each year, the Peabody Hotel’s holiday spirit – rivaled only by the five resident Mallard ducks who emerge twice daily to the delight of gawking guests – is on display in the Reconstruction Era bar and lobby, festooned with all manner of trappings and trimmings come December. 

The iconic Christmas tree, towering at 30 feet tall, is decked with a whopping 15,000 lights and 2,000 ornaments. Lighted garland (to the tune of 600 feet) hangs from the mezzanine, proffering a sweet view of the Peabody Gingerbread Village – made from 300 pounds of sugar, 400 eggs, and 50 pounds of assorted candy.
