My husband has been training up in Bay City for the last two weeks. After work, he and his co-workers decided to go to the city of Frankenmuth to see all the beautiful Christmas lights this time of year. Of course, I told him to take pictures for me. His phone isn’t the greatest, but it gave me the general overview. I’ve never been to Frankenmuth during Christmastime so I was super jealous I couldn’t be there to experience it myself.
A little background and history of the city Frankenmuth, Michigan:
Frankenmuth is nicknamed “Little Bavaria” and is home to Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland which calls itself “the world’s largest Christmas store.” You’ll find anything and everything related to Christmas you could imagine in the store. More than 8,000 styles of ornaments are sold here.
The area was settled and named in 1845 by Lutheran immigrants from Franconia, which is now a part of Bavaria in Germany. Frankenmuth became a villiage in 1904 and a city on October 1, 1959. The area remains a magnet for other Germans from the same region to this day.
