Christmas In Odessa, Delaware - A Tour of Decorated Private and Public Buildings

Christmas in Odessa Delaware Bell RingersSaturday December 4th was "Christmas In Odessa, Delaware" where for 46 years the Women's Club of Odessa have sponsored this wonderful holiday event to help keep the historical houses and buildings alive and available to the public.  We were invited by a friend to partake in this year's event and we were happy we did.

The first thing we did was to attend a performance by the First State Bell Ringers at Old Saint Paul's church.  Bell ringers get a real work out while creating wonderful sounding Christmas songs.  After the concert we enjoyed cookies and hot drinks, which warmed us for the start of our tour.

With tour book in hand we visited a few buildings and houses and enjoyed the stories that the tour guides provided at each location.  One house was decorated in the theme of Mary Poppins.  Each room was decorated to capture a chapter from one of Mary Poppins' adventures.  In addition to the tour there are antiques and crafts for sale and food to be enjoyed.

There is an admission fee to attend this annual event.

If you enjoy traveling back in time visiting historical houses, make sure to mark your calendar for next year's "Christmas in Odessa, Delaware".
