Christmas Luminance ...

"I will honor Christmas in my heart,

and try to keep it all the year."

                            ~ Charles Dickens

                                            ~ 1812-1870

                                                ~ published December 19, 1843


Bedecked in Christmas lights, the historic Wehr's Covered Bridge,
Orefield, Pennsylvania glows with the warmth of Christmas
on a December evening.

Wehr’s Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge located in South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is a three span, 117-foot-long, Burr Truss bridge, constructed in 1841. It has horizontal siding and a gable roof. It crosses the Jordan Creek and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The nearby Wehr’s Dam was built in 1904.

The Christmas Wish ...

"For it is good to be children sometimes,

and never better than at Christmas,

when its mighty Founder was a child Himself."

                                            ~ Charles Dickens

                                                                 ~ 1812-1870

                                                                     ~"A Christmas Carol"

Remember thinking about your Christmas wish list for Santa Claus?
This little girl's expression in this candid shot suggests she's doing just that as she rides
the Christmas Train - not to the North Pole, but through the rolling
Pennsylvania countryside.

Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves also
boarded the festive train in early December on the 
WK&S (Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern, Inc.) Railroad, Kempton, Pennsylvania.

The Hawk Mountain Line takes a scenic ride of six-and-a-half miles, on track
of the old Reading  Railroad, running along the Ontelaunee Creek, through
the farms and woods of Berks and Lehigh Counties.

Stardust Christmas ...

"A Christmas Carol" illuminates the marquee of the historic
Nineteenth Street Theatre on a December night. 
The Nineteenth Street/Civic Theatre is an historic
community center that hosts theatre, arts education
and film. It is the oldest cinema in Allentown, Pennsylvania,
opening September 17, 1928. In July 1957, the property was
purchased by Allentown's Civic Little Theatre. It is located
in the heart of the quaint West End Theatre District.
