Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm will present its 24th annual Old Time Christmas

More than any other holiday, Christmas celebrations center on the traditions of our families and our heritage. Begin a new tradition with your family this year with a visit to Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, where the Christmas customs of the past are brought to life. From the softly glowing lantern lit tour of the 19th century farm to complimentary hot chocolate and cookies, Old Time Christmas is sure to become a favorite holiday tradition for many years to come.

Gather around a bonfire while you wait for your visit to the 1800s to begin. . . . Guides in period clothing will lead guests on their journey into the past beginning with a scene where a Victorian family is busy working on Christmas preparations.. While you are there you can peek at their Christmas Putz, a homemade nativity and village scene that was a custom the Moravians began and was soon enthusiastically adopted by the Pennsylvania Germans. . . . Afterwards it’s on to the living Nativity located in the barnyard which includes the farm animals and offers a glimpse at the foundation of this special holiday. . . . Then off to a simple log cabin where folks will enjoy another family’s Christmas joy. Christmas caroling in the one room schoolhouse gets quite exuberant as the musicians and school marm lead the singing of favorite seasonal tunes. . . . At the original farmhouse, the Belschnikel, a traditional Pennsylvania German character who made his rounds in the Christmas season, will appear in the cellar kitchen to remind children that it’s not too late to be good! . . . A final stop in the Engel Education Building for complimentary refreshments adds to the festive atmosphere. . . . Don’t forget to visit the Gift Shop which is stocked with items handcrafted by Quiet Valley’s heritage craftspeople and is the place to find unique gifts at reasonable prices.

If you are looking for a truly meaningful way to start your Christmas season then this is the event for you.

Old Time Christmas is held annually the first two weekends of December.
