Event description

Description

Historic Yellow Springs is hosting a CCHPN Supper Lecture & Armchair Tour - Beware the Belsnickel: Featuring Rich Pawling, an award-winning educator and interpreter.

Sponsor: Chester County Historic Preservation Network

Rich Pawling will bring his talents as an educator, living history reenactor and presenter to the final Town Tour Supper Lecture. In the mindset of late 19th century Pennsylvanians of Palatinate German ancestry - without experiencing the Belsnickel, you could not fully appreciate the “grace” of Christmas. Children of the time often dreaded his arrival. You knew the Belsnickel had arrived when you heard the rattling of switches on the window, a loud thumping of his booted feet and the sound of bells ringing in the night. Discover how he evolved from the Germanic customs of the homeland into today’s Santa Claus.

Registration: 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm

A buffet supper and drinks will be provided.
