Woolridge notes the illuminated house brings a different feel to the house during the holidays. The numerous visitors also help to make the tours a unique experience.

Museum Manager Larry Buss explains the trees and lights begin to go up the first Monday in November. To add to the atmosphere, the Homestead also creates an incredibly complicated light system.
