Get the Christmas Spirit
Sparkling white lights adorn trees in the Historic Moravian District and beautiful, LED colored lights have been placed in the trees in the South Side Arts District. A live Advent Calendar involves a Downtown merchant coming out the door of the historic Goundie House on Main Street at 5 p.m. each night with a treat for whoever is waiting.
Historic Bethlehem Museums and Sites has Christmas-themed walking tours, bus tours and carriage rides. Costumed guides will lead the way to their museums that are decorated as they would have been when the Moravians first walked through these streets in the 1700s and 1800s. www.historicbethlehem.org

Christkindlmarkt is an arts and crafts market modeled after Europe’s open-air holiday marketplaces.
