Edible Real Estate and Other Delights at Old Sturbridge Village's Christmas by Candlelight 2015
One of my favorite holiday events starts the first weekend of December: Christmas by Candlelight at the historic Old Sturbridge Village.
This heart-warming celebration presents an old-fashioned Victorian holiday with such activities as sleigh rides, chestnut roasting, carolers, Dickens-era dancing, and tours of the festively-decorated properties of the Village. Everything happens at night, and if we are lucky, a fresh snowfall will make the glowing Village truly breathtaking.
The best part of Christmas by Candlelight for me (real estate agent!) is the Gingerbread House Contest. Dozens of crafty baker-builders submit their work to be judged by the visitors to the Village. It delights me every year to see the creative and tempting dwellings that turn up in the contest.
Below are some photos of gingerbread houses from 2014. I hope you enjoy viewing them and, if you are nearby Sturbridge in the month of December, do make time to participate in Christmas by Candlelight. There is no better way to light the flame of your holiday spirit.
If you find yourself enchanted with the town of Sturbridge, Massachusetts, and are considering a move here, please contact me. I can help you find your own magical home in our quaint, historic town.
