Many years ago, my son & I visited Brattonsville for their annual Christmas Candlelight Tour. As we're the "History Buffs" in the family, we left the rest of the family at home. We had a wonderful time. The experience is unforgettable. The grounds are illuminated with candle-lit lanterns and small fires. Various structures feature different themes and characters convey a story from a particular time in history. Refreshments can be purchased and enjoyed by a big bonfire while listening to the "Night Before Christmas" being read by a primitive looking Santa. I don't know if it's the stories, the costumes or the stars that seem to shine brighter here than anywhere else, but this quickly became our symbolic kick-off for the Holiday season. Many years have passed since our first visit. My son grew up, went to war, returned, and started his own life, but every year, on the 1st or 2nd weekend of December, the 2 of us make our way to Brattonsville for more wonderful memory making adventures. It's a magical experience and should be enjoyed by everyone.
