Holiday Wassail Open House


Celebrate the season by joining the Moravian Museum of Bethlehem’s 3rd annual tree lighting ceremony. Immediately following the City of Bethlehem tree lighting, follow the jingling bells rung by Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites’ Docents up Church Street to the Moravian Museum and join in the wassailing merriment. Admire the dazzlingly decorated Trees of Historic Bethlehem, each ornament carefully chosen by the Bethlehem Garden Club to pair with corresponding purses, clutches, and handbags from the PURSEonality exhibit. At 5:30 p.m., see the lighting of the Trees of Historic Bethlehem, officially kicking off the Trees of Historic Bethlehem exhibit. Hear about Bethlehem’s storied past from costumed docents stationed throughout the Moravian Museum. Lend an ear to festive holiday tunes to get in the holiday spirit. Light refreshments will be offered at this family-friendly event.
