CT: New London County-Mystic Seaport Museum (Holiday Event)

Go back to Christmas in 1876!

Lantern Light Village is an outdoor event at the Mystic Seaport Museum December 4, 11, 12, 18, 19, 20 (5 was cancelled due to weather) from 5-9 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on line.

When you first walk in you are greeted with a forest of Christmas trees which are lit to the beat of the music overhead. There’s a church with a queue lined up for a socially distanced visit with Santa Claus. While I have never personally met Santa Claus I was also greeted by the star and menorah glowing over the Christmas forest!

The walk is certainly what you make of it so stop by the open cabins to be greeted by yesteryear workers who share their 1876 profession. There are musicians and fire pits and horse drawn carriages completing the ambience for you. Stop and warm your hands over the cauldron of flames and listen to the fiddler.

So much fun to hear the families describe the old world charm to the kids who happily ran around the Christmas trees dancing to the music overhead. There was also a cabin for Christmas games.

Everyone is required to wear masks and capacity is limited. I felt quite comfortable there and I am quite conservative when it comes to exposure. Enjoy! Be Safe! Be Happy! It’s out there. Just a little extra research to find so join me and I will help. I do it anyway so why not benefit and encourage one another.

Couple this with a Mystic Holiday stroll and lovely outdoor restaurants (those blogs coming up next!)
