Oprah Winfrey’s Christmas Tree Has 3,000+ Lights on It

Oprah Winfrey doesn’t hold back when it comes to holiday décor.

The 67-year-old media mogul just shared a glimpse of her festive decorations, which include two massive Christmas trees. Oprah kicked things off by sharing a video on Instagram, featuring a man decorating one of the outdoor firs.

In the video, Oprah debuts the lit-up tree before asking the question that’s on everyone’s mind:

“How many lights do you think are on this tree right now?”

“We’re probably in the 3,000 range,” he says, explaining that he wrapped each branch in lights to achieve a glowing result.

Oprah also posted a photo of the final result, featuring herself (and her dog) standing in between the decorated Christmas trees.

In a blog post, Oprah explained why she has only outdoor Christmas trees, instead of indoor ones. “We are not big Christmas gift-givers here,” she wrote. “[Stedman Graham] and I have everything we need and stopped giving gifts a long time ago—maybe 30 years ago. We already have all the gifts we need.”

However, that didn’t stop the media mogul from decorating her staircase with garland and pinecones that are reminiscent of her childhood in Mississippi.

“So, I grew up in Mississippi, where these used to fall down in the yard—these pinecones—and you didn’t have to, like, pay for them,” she says in the clip. “This is my favorite part because that’s what it reminds me of.”

She adds, “Makes a beautiful staircase.”
