Goschenhoppen Christmas Market
Eight years ago I went to Christmas Market to meet Amy and Nonna! What fun that was. This year, Bev went to check out the festivities. Let's take a look at her trip.
This pat weekend was the Souderton Holiday Parade, Upper Perk Hometown Christmas Parade, and the Goschenhoppen Christmas Market! Saturday was too rainy for me to go to the Souderton parade. Way too wet. Sunday was much nicer. Xyra and i walked up the hill to catch our Hometown Christmas Parade, but got there just in time to see Santa and Mrs. Claus pass by - so no photos. 😢
So we headed down to Green Lane and the Goschenhoppen Historians Museum and Christmas Market.
First we hit the bake sale floor. I got a photo with the Grundsau. His name isn't Phil.
The second floor had all the fun themed trees and vendors. Check out this Phillies tree! I love it! Made Xyra think of Ladies Dartia and Grey!
I learned about Courting Mirrors, Bank Barns, and Elbedritsches. Nana Kestrel made the Elbedritches.
Another horse cart! This one with Santa.
Next we headed upstairs to the museum to get some photos of 18th and 19th century traditions. Typical gifts were oranges, glass candy, and walnuts.
Cookies were kept in baskets covered with a linen towel. These are apea cut out cookies.
Then we headed back down to street level and the general store museum for a game of checkers.
So much fun! What was your favorite part of Christmas Market?
Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas!
