Part of the fun of the holiday season are the many annual traditions. One particularly fun event for the whole family is Christmas by Candlelight at Old Sturbridge Village (OSV). With this event Old Sturbridge Village becomes an enchanted 19th century village “like a vintage holiday painting come to life.”
The holiday festivities will run for 9 days, December 6 through 8, 13 through 15, and 20 through 22, 2013 from 4 PM to 9 PM each day. Christmas by Candlelight will include:
- Carolers in costume
- Christmas trees
- Gingerbread houses
- Horse-drawn sleigh rides
- Sugar plums
- Yule logs
Learn from OSV historians the history behind holiday traditions such as Christmas carols and candy canes, roasted chestnuts, plum pudding, poinsettias, and more.
The Museum Shop will be open for holiday shopping and the Oliver Wright Tavern is open for Christmas by Candlelight Dining – be sure to check out the menu (PDF)…
