Celebrate 27 years of Holiday Magic
Nightly Tours 6pm to 10pm
A long time ago, there was a family who lived on a Portuguese island called The Azores. This family known as The Rombeiro’s consist of 10. Christmas was a very special time for one of the boys. Every year Edmundo would help his mom Maria setup the Christmas tree and build a manger with lava rock, since the island was a volcanic island. Christmas wasn’t about gifts, for them it was about family, it was about giving. Forty-Five years ago Edmundo and Mary Jo began their life here in the U.S. and Kathy was born, their only child. Edmundo wanted to pass on to their daughter the Christmas Traditions he knew from back home. Together Edmundo and Kathy (The main decorators of the Christmas House), transform their home into a Christmas Winter Wonderland a true magical experience which today is known as The Christmas House.
