A quiet snowy evening, several horse drawn wagons carrying excited seasonal guests, candlelit paths and homesteads everywhere, hot Wassail out of a cauldron hanging over a roaring fire and a peaceful village which was marked by time in the Farmer’s Museum, were all treasures to behold at the Candlelight Evening in Cooperstown, N.Y. It is a bit like walking into a Currier and Ives Christmas Card. I was fortunate to spend the day there volunteering at this wonderful holiday event and I encourage anyone who has not attended to look to next year and make it a part of your schedule in December! I have been so busy this year that this is the first chance that I have had to say Merry Christmas, anyhow. I hope that your New Year is filled with new beginnings!!
