Do you absolutely love Christmas? Well in Pigeon Forge we absolutely love Christmas too. In fact, because of our enthusiasm over this spectacular holiday, the cities of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg work in tandem with a few businesses including Dollywood and Ripley’s Aquarium to throw a Christmas light extravaganza that lasts for 4 months (November through February.) Millions of twinkling Christmas lights are displayed along the Pigeon Forge strip.
Not only does Pigeon Forge celebrate Christmas with Winterfest, we also have a Christmas store that’s open year round. The Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee pretty much tries to carry anything you need for Christmas. Some of the categories of stuff they sell are Christmas floral,
Christmas lights, Christmas music, Christmas ornaments, Christmas stockings, Christmas trees, Christmas villages, dolls and toys, Christmas garlands and wreaths, Christmas home décor and gifts, jewelry and apparel, nativity, Outdoor Christmas décor, and personalized items.
We have a couple favorites about The Christmas Place. Our first favorite is the fact that they have so much inventory in their store. Visiting the store and walking around is an experience in and of itself. It can really help put you in the Christmas spirit. Our second favorite about The Christmas Place is the singing Santa. Their website says that he’s currently taking his long Winter’s nap but he’ll be back early Spring. Santa does have special hours since he can’t possibly be at the shop every day of the year. Hours are posted each year when he wakes up from his nap.
