Kraynak’s Christmasland 2021 is open

Forget it beginning to look a lot like Christmas. It already does look a lot like Christmas at Kraynak’s Lawn and Garden Center in Hermitage, Pennsylvania.

The Mercer County business well-known for its 300-foot-long hallway that features multiple holiday-themed “rooms” opened the tradition for the holiday season on Sept. 17.

Kraynak’s has been offering the Christmasland displays since 1963, The Sharon Herald reported.

Kraynak’s manager Dan Zippie told The Herald that all of the animations and displays are new this year.

The Christmasland display is open through Dec. 31. The store is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Kraynak’s is located at 2525 E. State St., Hermitage, PA 16148.

Take a look at images from the 2019 display.

Bummed that the Holiday Market at Market Square is closed?

Mixed emotions — since it’s for the health and safety of our community. Besides, let’s all be safe now so we can have this tradition for years to come with our friends and family.

Here are some local artists I enjoy supporting for holiday gifts, ornaments and decor. These are in no particular order. Also, I tossed in the Heinz History Center, which sells a lot of Pittsburgh-themed stuff!
