Beidler House colonial candlelight reception highlights Twelfth Night traditions
January 5 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm| Free
The German colonial candlelight holiday reception at the Beidler House has been reconfigured to highlight the Twelfth Night traditions and has been rescheduled for Sunday, Jan. 5, from 1 to 5 p.m.
Our annual event has always highlighted the rich German heritage of the area in a setting that offers a living history perspective on colonial-era German-based holiday celebrations. There will be musicians, German holiday delicacies and decorations of traditional fresh greens.
This year our rescheduled event, coming near the end of the Yuletide season, honors the Twelfth Night traditions and its attendant revelries heralding in the New Year.
