Each year, two million twinkling lights are strung on the outside of the hotel while thousands more are strung inside. Thursday's lighting ceremony will be held just after 6 p.m. and will air live on wkrn.com. A Country Christmas continues through January 1 and includes the Radio City Christmas Spectacular starring the world-famous Rockettes, ICE! featuring DreamWorks Shrek the Halls, Lorrie Morgan's Enchanted Christmas Dinner and Show and much more.Visit ChristmasAtGaylordOpryland.com for complete details.
