Each December since 1927, the world-famous Hotel takes on the air of eighteenth-century England. The Dining Room, its tables aglow with candlelight, is filled with the warmth and spirit of this special time of year. The evening abounds with a profusion of food and the ringing sound of voices. The cathedral windows look out onto the beauty of Yosemite Valley, and the spirit of all things beautiful cannot help but be felt. Music, nature and peace are united in this evening, a tribute to a timeless season of joy.
