Branson’s two-month celebration of the traditional American Christmas, Ozark Mountain Christmas, is unique. It’s blend of Branson’s marvelous live shows; Silver Dollar City’s Old Time Christmas Festival, with its 6.5 million glittering Christmas lights; attractions; shopping; and emphasis on the reason for the season is without equal.

It has been my experience, over the last 32 years, that one of the reasons for Branson’s continued success is that it is constantly coming up with fresh new reasons for people to visit and revisit Branson. It’s no different with Ozark Mountain Christmas. Already famous for its millions of Christmas lights, Christmas shows, and more, Branson is seeking to become “America’s Christmas Tree City.” Many area businesses are sponsoring Christmas Trees which are on public display throughout the Branson area.

The Christmas trees are located just about anywhere you go in Branson and are classified into one of four general types, “Traditional Trees,” evergreens decorated and with lights; “Light Trees,” made mostly from lights that are typically animated and change color; “Natural Trees,” trees and plants, other than evergreens, decorated with lights and decorations; and “Creative Trees,” formed from unusual objects into interesting one-of-a-kind displays such as Ride the Ducks “Life Jacket Christmas Tree.”.

The colored Branson Christmas Tree Tour Map shows the location and type of each tree by location and “number.” The maps are available at the Branson Lakes Area CVB Visitor’s Center and other locations throughout Branson making it easy for visitors to find and enjoy the trees. The “Branson Register Numerical Tree List,” immediately below the picture of the map in this article, makes it easy to transition from the number on the map to who the sponsor is, the trees type, and other information.
