The annual Holiday at the Arboretum features the 12 Days of Christmas and The Christmas Village. Visitors can stroll the garden to see the 25-foot-tall elaborately decorated Victorian-style gazebos that represent each of The 12 Days of Christmas, presented by Reliant. In the evenings, the garden is open late for a special lighted nighttime experience with over a million lights, with the gazebos and Christmas Village coming to life. Guests can also visit with Santa Claus every night after Thanksgiving, and enjoy entertainment, shopping, food and beverage options.

The expanded Christmas Village in Pecan Grove opens on November 27. These life-size European-style houses are on display both day and night with lighted trees, shop owners passing out samples, and live entertainment. Santa Claus has his own house and a sleigh for photo opportunities. This year includes a new German-built authentic Christmas Pyramid. Each level has animation, a Tavern, a Chocolate Shop, and a Toy Shop.
