Love all things Christmas? Then you need to check out the largest Christmas store in Ohio – located right in the heart of Amish country. Decorated to look like a winter village scene, Tis the Season is a must-see if you are visiting Holmes County.
Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year, so of course we had to make a stop at Tis the Season – Ohio’s largest Christmas shop on our recent trip to Amish country. Although this Berlin Ohio Christmas shop is not quite as large as Bronner’s Christmas store in Frankenmuth, Michigan (which is the world’s largest), Tis the Season Christmas store in Berlin Ohio is still quite impressive in its own right.
About the largest Christmas store in Ohio
Tis the Season is located on State Route 39, right in the heart of the Berlin shopping district. It is a circular shaped building and hard to miss. There is plenty of parking, although I imagine around the holidays you might have to hunt a little more for a spot.
Tis the Season Christmas store in Ohio Amish country is a 20,000 square feet wonderland of holiday shopping! With three floors of Christmas decor, you could easily spend an hour or two in Tis the Season.
Tis the Season features 100 decorated Christmas trees in a variety of themes – patriotic, victorian, outdoors, and so much more. It truly is a beautifully decorated shop!
The Yuletide Village at the Berlin Ohio Christmas Shop
You enter the main shopping area through a log cabin with a real working fireplace. Cozy and inviting! This area of the shop features primitive and country decorations.
After you go through the cabin, you will enter a central shopping area with beautiful traditionally decorated trees and a nativity display that immediately catches your eye.
The centerpiece of the main shopping area at the Tis the Season Christmas store in Berlin Ohio is the Alleluia Chapel, which is where you can find all sorts of pretty angels for your Christmas displays, as well as other religious items. Be sure to check out the beautiful stained glass and the antique church pews!
There are several rooms extending from the main floor featuring different themes. One room features vintage decorations and another features patriotic decor.
I loved the display of nutcrackers at this Berlin Ohio Christmas shop. I have a small, but growing, display of nutcrackers that I add to each holiday season, so I spent several minutes looking at their assortment.
From the main shopping floor, you can take the stairs to the second floor, which is a loft overlooking the lower level. It is decorated to look like a quaint little Christmas village. Street lights line the pathway which add to the ambiance. Behind the facades of the Yuletide Village are partitioned shopping areas filled with more Christmas goodies for your shopping enjoyment.
Upstairs you can find areas dedicated to Christmas villages, holiday kitchenware, and snowmen among other things. There is even a little area on the second floor that features tropical Christmas decor.
The last area of the store to explore is the basement. You can get to it via a stairway near the checkout counter. The basement area features a forest of Christmas trees ranging in size from 2 feet to 12 feet. They also carry 75 different styles of Christmas lights. The lower level also has collectibles like Steinbach nutcrackers and Fontanini nativities.
The lower level of this Berlin Ohio Christmas shop also has a nice selection of blown glass ornaments, including the ones pictured above. I am not sure why anyone would ever want a toilet or plunger ornament for their Christmas tree (for a plumber maybe?), but seeing them made me chuckle.
Of course, we couldn’t leave Tis the Season Christmas store in Berlin Ohio without an ornament for our tree. Christmas ornaments make great travel souvenirs! So I got this cute horse and buggy ornament. When I put it on our tree this December, I will have a great reminder of the fun we had on our trip to Amish Country in Ohio.
We truly enjoyed our visit to the largest Christmas store in Ohio. With Christmas music softly playing in the background and all the beautiful decorations to look at, Tis the Season Christmas store in Ohio Amish country made me forget for a minute that the holidays are still 7 months away.
So if you visit this Christmas shop, be prepared to start dreaming of softly falling snow, twinkling lights, and the smell of freshly baked Christmas cookies!
