Peddler's Village Christmas Festival
December 2007
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. This year I kicked off the season by going to the Peddler's Village Christmas Festival with Kelly. We'd been to the little shopping village in Lahaska, PA in the summer before (see those photos here) but it's a whole other place at Christmastime. If carolers, hot mulled cider, toasting marshmallows over an open fire and thousand upon thousand of Christmas lights doesn't get you in the Christmas spirit, I don't know what ever will!

02 Light & Wreaths 05 Decorated Tree 06 Frozen Pond
The entire village was decked out Victorian Chrstmas style
and you think reaching the top of your Christmas tree is tough!
The ice on the pond gives you an idea of how cold it was
07 Planter 09 Color Guard 10 Marching Band
Nothing says Christmas like pine arrangements
The Central Bucks East High School Color Guard kicks off the parade
The Central Bucks East High School Maching Band
15 Horse & Carriage 16 Santa 17 Roasting Marshmallows
Here comes Santa Claus!
Santa's here!
Yum! Toasting marshmallows
20 Frozen Stream 22 Carolers 24 Cider Sale
The stream is almost frozen
Carolers add a Dickensian touch to the festival
Lines for the hot mulled apple cider were long all day
27 Lighted Deer 37 Christmas Lights 38 Christmas Lights & Ice
As the sun set, the village lit up
Thousands of lights transformed the village
Looking across the frozen pond
39 Christmas Lights 40 Christmas Lights 41 Apple Cider
Shops light up to welcome shoppers, lots and lots of shoppers
There was no real snowflakes, but this was the next best thing
Once the sun set and the tempertures really dropped hot cider was the perfect way to warm up
