Stones & Snow

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas, every where we go.
And so,  we're working through our Holiday Season Wanderlust Wishlist. 
What better place to start than a town named Bethlehem?
Bethlehem, PA, nicknamed Christmastown during the Great Depression, is a quick jaunt from Philli, and the top of my Wandering List this year. Lamp posts adorned with wreaths, traditional Moravian stars hanging even in alley ways, and a light dusting on the rooftops are postcard perfects.   
In the 1700's, Count Zinzendorf led a bunch of Moravians and set up a mission.  Read about them,. Its fascinating.
