Stroudsburg to celebrate a historic Christmas

November 27, 2013 by  

The 23rd annual Old Time Christmas is taking place for two separate weekends next month in Stroudsburg.

Visitors will have the opportunity to experience what the holiday season was like in the 1800s. People dressed in period costume will be taking part in story telling sessions and caroling, while also leading lantern-lit walking tours of Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm.

A bonfire will be lit to help ward off the winter chill, and guests will have the opportunity to listen to a Victorian family preparing to take part in a Christmas play, as well as experience a live nativity scene with live animals. It should therefore provide a good experience for families looking to learn how others used to celebrate the holidays, and to maybe help them recapture their childlike wonder about the holiday season.

It is likely that Quiet Valley will be advertising this event throughout Stroudsburg. When organizations find they need materials such as flyers to market upcoming events, they often look to local printing companies for help. The flyers are then distributed either by direct delivery or are handed out on street corners.

The Old Time Christmas celebration is taking place on December 7 – 8 and December 14 – 15 at Quiet Valley Farm, running from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm each day. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children aged 3-12. To find out more about all of the activities taking place on both weekends, call 570-992-6161.
