Koziars on NBC's Today Show

Christmas came early for Koziar's Christmas Village as NBC gave national coverage to our Christmas display.

NBC's Today Show ran a segment interviewing Sonia Koziar and touring the grounds. Sonia shared her fond memories of growing up on the family farm and her father's Christmas light display.

The segment includes amazing drone footage, historical pictures, a visit with Santa, and a tour of some of the breathtaking light displays with Sonia. What a treat!

Thank you Today Show! You've done us proud.

Christmas in America: A Photographic Celebration of the Holiday Season Hardcover – November 16, 2011
by Peter Guttman (Author)


Nothing reminds us of the good things in life—family, friendship, food, and good cheer—more than Christmas. With stunning images and illuminating text, award-winning photographer Peter Guttman offers a dazzling overview of the wintry landscapes, traditions, ceremonies, spectacles, and pastimes of the holiday season throughout the United States. Delve into the landscapes and streetscapes of Christmas in America and you can almost smell the frosted scent of snow-covered pines, of chestnuts roasting, and of family meals being shared.

In the East, we find the spirit of the season in a cozy Vermont country inn, or an "army of elves" in a Philadelphia parade, or the sweeping grace of the sugar plum fairies in the Nutcracker Suite. In our heartland, we dogsled through a crystal wilderness in Minnesota, discover blazing bonfires in Louisiana, and explore regal plantations aglow in Mississippi. The snowy cliffs of the Grand Canyon, steam trains weaving high amongst the Rockies, the textured pueblos of New Mexico, the almost heavenly night sky of Utah's Monument Valley, and the indescribable glazed beauty of Yosemite reflect the West. With these vistas, and more, Peter Guttman captures what is so magical about us and our land. Like the holiday season itself, Christmas in America is a treasure.
