Celebrate the holiday season in the cozy Brandywine Valley.  Step back in time with a look at Yuletide at Winterthur, a celebration that showcases Henry Francis du Pont's home in seasonal splendor.   At Longwood Gardens, take in the blue and white twinkling lights, whirling fountain features, and trees adorned with icicles and fountain-inspired ornaments. Check into the Hotel du Pont, one of the most lavish hotels of America's Gilded Age, for the night  and enjoy a wonderful dinner.  The next day, tour the world-famous Nemours Mansion & Gardens beautifully decorated for the holidays with antiques from its collection, elegant trees, garlands, hand-painted ornaments and original toys from the du Pont estate.  The du Pont's have left a living legacy and you can experience where it all began at the Hagley Museum and Library.
