  • The National Christmas Center is Closing

    We read on their website and then confirmed with a visit on Thursday, that the National Christmas Center in Paradise, Pa., will be closing its doors on Sunday, January 7, 2018, if they can't find a buyer. We've been regulars over the years and it will really be sad to see them go if no buyer is found. If you haven't been there, I heartily recommend the pilgrimage before it's too late.

    I have always wanted to go there. I guess it will have to get higher on my priority list. I hope they find a buyer.

      Oh no! Sad news.

      Here's a tour of it on Google:

            Oh man, visiting the National Christmas Center is one of those things that's been on my bucket list for years. It's sad to hear that they are struggling so badly that they can't keep the doors open anymore. Where is America's Christmas spirit?

            Hopefully a buyer will come through at the last minute, but unfortunately it looks like visiting there is now an opportunity that is simply lost.

              I didn't even know there was a National Christmas Center. Too bad it is closing and I hope someone takes it over.

              Hopefully Bronner's never closes, as I want to visit there someday.

                Did you know they allowed google maps to go inside the store with their cameras? (so that you can view the inside of the store with "street view"

                    Don't lose hope yet, everyone! They're still open through January 6th. I hope some of you that want to see it before it closes can manage to do so. I'd like to see it as well. We're probably scattered all over the globe here, but maybe we could arrange a group visit?
