Undeterred by snow and storms, the holiday celebration goes on at historic Beidler House! Celebrate the conclusion of the Yuletide season and begin the New Year at our “Twelfth Night Revelries” featuring food and festivities, and music and dance.
House and hall are bedecked in nature’s green finery and holly, the Amity Colonial Dancers are ready to dance, and the sweet strains of live music will be heard throughout the house. Mulled cider and various holiday treats are on the menu.
Twelfth Night is an ancient celebration steeped in the mists of time. Thought to originate in early Anglo-Saxon traditions, it evolved to mark the coming of the Epiphany, and the conclusion of the 12 days of Christmas. It is marked as a time of great merrymaking and song. Celebrate with us as it was done in “the olden times” and still in England, the Alps, Germany, and even the US, as we commemorate this early and joyful tradition.
The Amity Colonial Dances will perform at 1:30 and 3:30 pm.
