How this Vermont town spreads holiday cheer
Don’t be afraid to admit it: You love those Hallmark Movie specials about Vermont towns at Christmas time. While those movies are probably a bit more sappy and fantastical than real life, the feelings that those scenes evoke are pretty on target. Stowe, Vermont is truly a magical place during the holidays and this is how our small town spreads holiday cheer.
The holidays wouldn’t be the same with out a tree lighting ceremony. We have at least three ceremonies to choose from during the holiday season. Choose from the Trapp Family Lodge or Spruce Peak on November 30th or Stowe Village during the Traditional Christmas in Stowe Event on December 6th.
The holiday season as seen through the eyes of Children is really a special thing. If you want to get a visit to Santa on your calendar while visiting Stowe, Vermont, he can be found at Stowe Mercantile on December 7th. During our town wide Traditional Christmas in Stowe event, children also have the opportunity to make gingerbread houses at Cork Wine Bar and Market or observe candy cane making at Laughing Moon Chocolates during the holiday season.
And don’t miss the live holiday music downtown during the Traditional Christmas in Stowe event. Check out last year’s music:
This year will feature two different local youth rock bands, the Skeleton Keys and the Blue Diamonds!
The holiday season in Stowe, Vermont is also celebrated with events with our community of spiritual organizations. Join us for “Share the Light: Hanukkah Celebration and Benefit Concert” at the Zen Barn on December 23rd, or a Christmas Eve service at the St. John’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church.
The holidays wouldn’t be complete without giving back to our community. Anyone is welcome to participate in the Lamoille Family Center holiday project. Through this project, you can adopt a family and make their holiday season a little brighter with gift, food or monetary donations.
