Merry Christmas from the Bellagio

Howdee all,

Merry Christmas to all our friends who celebrate this holiday.

Jeff and I took a tour around the Bellagio when our nephew David was in town.

Check out the polar bear decked out in flowers..Belagio Christmas_002

I don't normally like going to the strip and the casinosBelagio Christmas_007

But…I love looking at the decor. The Bellagio does an amazing job.

I adore these huge sparkly stars!

  1. Very festive!
    I don't think I've ever heard "Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring" played like that. But I like it. Didn't recognize the rest of the music.
    Have a beautiful Christmas, Dawn, and a very happy new year!

    Hope you and your family have a great Holiday


  3. Great post - I love the Bellagio! Those huge ornaments are fantastic.

    Merry Christmas! :)

  4. When we took our last Christmas trip to Las Vegas/Grand Canyon (in 2004), I thought the Bellagio decorations were the best. Great video and music. Wish you the best holdiay and good cheer!

  5. Dawn, not only is Las Vegas a festive place all year long (especially on the strip), but they sure know how to do "fantasy" in a big way during the holidays. You depicted The Bellagio's festive atmosphere beautifully in your photos and video. I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a great new year to come.

  6. How long are you going to be out there? Mr Wren and I are visiting friends for a few days later this winter and I'd love to have someone to go birding with.

  7. Those are some incredible decorations! Very beautiful!

    I hope you and Jeff have a joyous Christmas. Hopefully you will at least be with some friends : )


  8. In case I don’t have a chance to say it later, Merry Christmas dAWn!

  9. Season Greetings Dawn and Jeff. I wish you both a very Happy Christmas.

  10. Merry Christmas to you and yours Dawn!

  11. This is a great travel blog you have here. I'm a first-time visitor, but I'm very impressed. I have a travel blog myself which I hope to be a top resource for those looking to go on vacation.

    I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each out. Please let me know if this is okay.
