The holiday season is getting under way this weekend at Elvis Presley's Graceland mansion.  Actor Charles Esten will help to officially launch the festivities. 

The "Nashville" star will be in Memphis to flip the switch and turn on all the holiday lights and decorations on display at the property.  The seasonal display celebrates both the sacred and secular aspects of the holiday, with a life-size Nativity scene, Santa and his sleigh, and other decorations Elvis used to give a festive Christmas look to Graceland during his lifetime. 

The 2013 Graceland Lighting Ceremony will take place Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. Eastern, and be streamed live at
