A Local Holiday Tradition

Hello everybody, it’s Mimi!  Everyone has different holiday traditions, whether they are family ones or ones dictated by region, ethnicity and so on.  One of the popular ones around here is to go to Kraynak’s nursery to see “Christmas Land”!  Mom decided it was something I needed to see, so off we went.

Mom told me that Christmas Land has been around a long time, at least 40 years that she knew of.  It’s a beautiful display of around 75 Christmas trees and other holiday décor items, arranged in such a way that you can just walk through and enjoy.   People of all ages go to see it, and then of course, there’s the shopping afterwards.  Before we went in mom informed me that we would not be doing any shopping today since it would be busy plus too close to when Santa comes to visit.  I told her I understood and didn’t really care, I was just excited to see the displays!

I wasn’t prepared for just how pretty some of these trees were, wow!  If you weren’t into the holiday spirit when you came, you sure would be when you left.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without something Grinch themed!

And some Elsa and Anna!

Mom and I both loved this Eskimo/Inuit display.


Guess I’d better be good with Mrs. Claus looking over my shoulder… 😉

Mom said this part of the display made her think of Xyra and Franz!

We both really liked this blue themed Christmas tree too.

Hey look, a stuffed Laney dog!

We both thought this room looked so nice and cozy.

This tree reminded mom of her friend Wendy who has peacocks on her farm!  We both agreed that this was the prettiest tree of the bunch, the colors are so regal looking.


And then we were at the end already.  It was so pretty, I was sad to see we were at the end.  Mom said the only thing she was disappointed in was no Minion display, she said they did one a few years ago.  I bet Cassandra would have loved that!

We did look around a little bit at some of the pretty Christmas items they had on display.  We found a whole forest of trees that were just my size!

I hope you enjoyed our little taste of Christmas here in Western Pennsylvania!  Mom said that maybe we’d go back in the spring when they have Easter Bunny Lane, doesn’t that sound like fun?!

Merry Christmas! 

(We received no compensation from Kraynak’s for this post, we just did it for fun!)

  1. What a great adventure! I am glad that you and Mimi had fun.
    I had not heard of this site. It looks beautiful. I love the purple and blue Christmas tree.
    It makes the think that I haven’t seen Hershey at Christmastime for a while. I will make a point to going there before the end of the year.
    Happy Doll-idays to you!
