During the holiday season each year, a normal residence in Kokomo transforms into a Christmas wonderland that is truly amazing. Located at 1501 East Sycamore Street, the We Care Christmas Tree House is a must-see holiday attraction. I was fortunate to get a personal tour last Friday from the owner of the residence and was truly in awe!
The beautiful home is decorated top to bottom (literally!) with 130 Christmas trees and 45,000 Christmas lights. Each tree has a special theme and there are even decorated trees hanging upside down on display. My favorite was the black crystal tree – the Christmas tree is actually black and has beautiful crystal ornaments on it that sparkle in the lights. In addition to their trees, there is an enormous village display and any kind of Christmas decoration that you can imagine. Every nook and cranny is filled with something – even the laundry room and bathrooms!
The Christmas Tree House is open now through December 31, 2008(closed on December 24 & 25) and admission is free. Donations are accepted for We Care, an organization in Kokomo that benefits local charities. The home will be open during the month of January by appointment only and private showings and groups can also schedule specific times to tour. If you are looking for something to do this holiday season, plan a trip to Kokomo. You will not be disappointed!
