Event description

Description

Decorate a fresh wreath with bows, balls, bells, pinecones, holly, icicles and ornaments! Select unique handmade gifts for the holidays. Enjoy food, hot mulled wine, apple cider, taffy pulling, and heirloom-recipe baked goods. Children can make a punched or painted tin holiday ornament and have their photograph taken with Belsnickel. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Christmas in Catoctin Furnace included a visit from Belsnickel to the homes of German immigrants. During this visit, which took place two weeks before Christmas, Belsnickel rewarded good children with treats but carried a switch to punish naughty ones. Also experience Kris Kringling, a costumed holiday tradition of dancing, singing and eating while visiting village homes! (FREE)
