A Christmas Past in the Pennsylvania German Tradition


Be transported back in time with a visit to Woodmere’s festive exhibition of nineteenth-century children’s toys and holiday decorations from the collection of the Germantown Historical Society. Highlights include an amazing dollhouse replica of a Germantown row home, and a sculpture of Belsnickel, the predecessor of the modern Santa Claus, who often created as much fright as delight because he knew which children had been naughty and nice. Happy Holidays!
