A Victorian Christmas In Danielson, CT

Okay – so I cannot possibly think of a better way to get into the Christmas spirit than this.

Victorian Christmas

My sweet friend Jon over at Westfield Congregational Church, UCC in Danielson, CT has started an AMAZING Christmas tradition over there.

Classic Decorations,
Favorite songs, and the reading of the Christmas Story

Unbelievable does not even begin to describe these services. Bruce and I both went last year and felt instantly transported to a different time and space.  The prayers, music, decor and outfits are all from the Victorian Era.  The attention to detail is exquisite!

Some photos I took last year.  They have the most beautiful space – it really lends itself nicely to this event.  I’m not sure you could pull a Victorian Christmas worship off as well as they do in other spaces.

If you live within driving distance of Westfield, I would STRONGLY encourage you to check it out!  Bruce and I plan on going this weekend, so let me know if you are going!
