he season creates many reasons dedicated to holiday entertainment with The Shawnee Playhouse set to stir festivities featuring magnificent sights to see for the young and young-atheart. From Hollydaze Kidz Kabaret; to The Nutcracker Ballet performances are in-sync spreading cheer across the region. Though dates and times fall in-line with This Week in the Pocono’s Entertainment segment to the left; a brief summary of what you’ll expect to see offers insight below. Plan a day or evening out and experience talented performers, music and merriment.

Hollydaze Kidz Kabaret

Entertaining for the entire family, a talented cast of kid characters bring Hollydaze music to the stage. This festive feature has open seating with no tickets required except for a suggested donation at the door.

The Nutcracker Ballet

Presented by C&K Dance Theater, this masterpiece follows Clara as she slips downstairs to play with her Nutcracker as others sleep. Experience the young girl’s magical dream journey guided by Herr Drosselmeir.

A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail Eeyore, the old gray donkey who lives by himself in the

thistle corner of Hundred-Acre Wood is miserable, for it seems that he lost his tail. His good friends Pooh and Piglet organize a search full of fun, excitement, and delightful songs!

Tiny Tim’s Christmas Carol

Musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic brings the story to life as seen through the eyes of Tiny Tim, whose pure innocence and will for life teaches Scrooge to soften his cold, callous heart. Book and music by Rick Cummins with book and lyrics by Michael Harron.

ith a good book in hand let’s expand to some down-time resources as Carroll & Carroll Booksellers rejoices in the relaxation of reading. Curl up next to a crackling fire, warm drink in hand, and expand your mind with a fiction or factbased read find. More than a “novel” suggestion indeed, this Stroudsburg stop along Main Street is well known for featuring new, used and rare books. Whether collecting a few to brave winter’s chill indoors; or considering a present, part of what makes book shopping so pleasant is the idea of opening up a reader’s imagination.

uiet Valley Living Historical Farm’s Old Time Christmas tradition continues December 8th and 9th with an astounding glimpse at customs of days gone by. Start your own holiday ritual as these peaceful winter farm outings inspire a look at 19th century festivities through re-enactments and living displays.

Gaze upon guides in period clothing as they lead softly glowing lantern tours through the farm every 20 minutes from 3 to 7p.m. with stories and scenes of good cheer. Grab a glimpse of the living Nativity with Quiet Valley barnyard animals, even a soloist and scripture readings. Then watch as excitement builds for Belschnikel, the Pennsylvania German Christmas character, to appear who knows if you were naughty or nice this year! Complimentary hot chocolate and cookies by a warming bonfire adds the finishing touch with handcrafted treasures for sale in the holiday gift shop. Considered an ideal outing for scout troops, church groups and family get-togethers; each tour lasts about an hour and a half to two hours with discounts available between 2:30 through 3:30p.m. . Regular admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 3 to 12 with under age 3 admitted free. Old Time Christmas is outside part of the time, so let’s remind one and all to dress warmly...and have a ball!

To pick a few...the Historic Homes of Dorflinger Glass House Tour, starting 10a.m. at Dorflinger Factory Museum, opens doors to tour four exquisite homes all in some fashion related to Dorflinger Glass Factory. Ready for a repeat sweet treat? Curbing any baking anxiety, the Annual Cookie Walk offers an amazing variety to buy and pose as your own tray this holiday!

Horse and Carriage, as well as, Santa Winterfest Flyer on the Stourbridge Line join a lengthy list in Saturday -andSunday memory making times, so consider this just a taste of what’s to come with a Hawley Holiday theme at Winterfest!

tarting Gate Action Sports, just minutes from Shawnee in Bushkill, welcomes the opportunity to dice a bit of advice -beforethe ice. This action sports one-stop-shop for equipment like skis, snowboards, apparel, and rentals also holds a high reputation for experience. At the forefront of guidance, Starting Gate offers more than storefront merchandise with Mal Law graciously obliging this opportunity to connect with first-timers considering the sport. “Take it slow,” he suggests. Before conquering “The ultimate goal of carving turns,” Law adds warmth and comfort on the slopes as a means of avoiding unnecessary distractions. Explaining “Proper clothing is vital,” he strongly recommends with a smile, “No blue jeans!” Listing waterproof essentials like hats, gloves and insulated socks of the utmost importance for endurance, plus helmets for all ages, he closes in his list with a wish to enjoy this magnificent means of experiencing the great outdoors.

Patch W

hether honoring a long standing tradition or starting anew, The Briar Patch creates considerably more than a holiday shopping experience adding a festive view too! With a focus on being a seasonal destination, this Thornhurst Nurseries location lends an ideal atmosphere as guests stroll along a path past rows of fresh wreaths and Christmas trees. Arriving at the rustic holiday shop, an immeasurable amount of cheer that’s lasted over 20 years has friends and families returning to buy gifts and see the sights time after time. “Born from our love of the Christmas spirit dedicated to the child in all of us,” reads the plaque outside the quaint cabin doorway. Step inside and senses arise with tempting aromatic hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Eyes instantly go wide capturing a

magnificently restored sleigh surrounded by an array of folk art inspired creations. Brilliant gifts come to life with candles, boutique buys and clever home decor items tastefully aligned making this a definitive festive find. Let’s not forget great ganders like “The Deep Woods Santa.” While he does not have antlers, though covered in corduroy from head-to-toe, this holiday figure shares a hearty ho-ho-ho wherever he goes. Igniting shrieks of delight from old and young alike the jolly Pocono Mountains persona completes The Briar Patch at Thornhurst Nurseries ideal appeal for holiday festivities.
