Day 2

After breakfast, we meet our step-on guide and depart for a tour of "Bethlehem by Day". Our guide will share stories of the people and places that made Bethlehem a city known for its rich colonial and industrial history while we view some of Bethlehem's most significant landmarks. Following our tour, we will visit the Christmas Community Putz. The Christmas Putz is a retelling of the story of Christ's birth through narration and music, while tiny lights illuminate each miniature scene. The figures in the Christmas Community Putz, many of them antiques of German origin, are displayed amidst live moss, driftwood and rocks. Following lunch on your own we depart for the Central Moravian Church for a "Moravian Musical Experience". You'll experience a wonderful Christmas program that includes beautiful seasonal organ music and traditional Moravian music, a spoken introduction to the Moravian Church, its history, its role in the founding of Bethlehem, and the rich musical traditions of Moravian music. Next we will visit one of the top holiday markets in the world, Christkindlmarkt Bethlehem. The market features aisles of exquisite handmade works created by some of the nation's finest artisans, hear the heart-warming sounds of live holiday music, and enjoy authentic German and Austrian food and much, much more! After dinner on your own, step aboard our deluxe motor coach for a ride through Bethlehem for its annual "Bethlehem by Night". The tour begins in Bethlehem's Northside, a historic district aglow with candles, and continue on through Bethlehem's Southside where multicolored lights mark the city's ethnic diversity and includes a visit to the famous star atop South Mountain. Good Luck at the casino tonight!

Day 3

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and some free time this morning before we depart for Lititz, Pennsylvania. Upon our arrival, we step into The Barnyard Art Studio & Gallery of Elva Hurst for a "Chalk Talk Experience". Sit back, relax and engage your senses in this converted barn studio space while Elva Hurst amazes you with her chalk artistry. A former Old Order Mennonite, the artist offers insights into Amish culture with a story that comes to life (and lights up) before your eyes! The theme of the chalk drawing, "Oh Christmas Tree" is a touching presentation revealing the true meaning of Christmas. Elva Hurst incorporates music, storytelling, oral history and recordings while creating a dazzling chalk drawing. It truly is an inspirational and uplifting experience to behold, and one that you have to see to believe! Next we make the short drive to the Oregon Dairy Country Restaurant for a delicious buffet lunch. After lunch, settle back and reflect on your Bethlehem get-away filled with the wonderful sights and musical sounds of the yuletide season! Happy Holidays!
