So you love Christmas. It’s your favorite holiday and as soon as soon as Christmas is over this year you start planning for Christmas for the next year.
If this is a fact, then I have the place for you. Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland, Located in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland is the World’s Largest Christmas Store.
It’s open year around and is located on 27 acres of land and they need this much land because the parking lot was built to hold 1000 cars and buses. The building alone is 7.35 acres in size. That equals an unbelievable 320,166 square feet. Just to give you an idea how big that is. 320,166 square feet is the equivalent to five and half football fields with a little room to spare.
WOW THAT IS A LOT OF CHRISTMAS!!
On the outside there is a Santa Claus that stands 17 feet tall and a Snow Man that stands 15 feet tall.
If your still low on your Christmas spirit all you have to do is walk into Bonner’s CHRISTmas wonderland and you will be over whelmed by The sights, sounds, and the spirit of CHRISTmas that has completely surrounded you. You will see more than 350 fully decorated Christmas trees on display. They have about 800 animated figurines on display and more than 500 miles of Christmas lights strung out which helps create there average electric bill of $1,250 a day.

Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland started from humble beginnings, quickly growing through several expansions to become the World’s Largest Christmas Store with beautifully landscaped grounds covering 27 acres. But for originator Wally Bronner, the journey has always been about CHRIST, and “decorating hearts with peace and love.”
Wally was a permanent fixture in Bronner’s, working only on days “that end in Y ” as he always said. His warm smile and colorful jokes brought JOY to all he met. That legacy is still passed on to the millions of guests who experience Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland each year since his passing in 2008.
Bronner’s is located in Frankenmuth, Michigan’s “Little Bavaria.”
