On Sunday, December 5th, the annual Christmas celebration in Bethel will commence.
The original colonists observed many “fete” days such as Easter, Christmas, New Years, harvest feasts, Independence Day and others with music, singing, dancing and visiting. On these occasions tables were loaded with all the good things the German kitchen and cellar could offer. Everyone was welcome and many came.
Bethel continues to host an annual “Christmas in Bethel” celebration to gather as neighbors and friends to start off the Christmas season. There will be plenty of food, historic home tours, gift and craft vendors, children’s activities and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, and traditional vespers and candlelight walk to end the day.
There will be plenty of food that consists of sweets, bakery items, with drinks including cider, coffee and hot coco, along with vendors that will provide shopping and crafts, and there will be a visit from Santa & Mrs. Claus. Other events happening include and a walking home tour, with the evening concluding with a Vespers service, followed by a candlelight walk, and an evening meal.
