Old Time Christmas Celebration



Many gather in North Alabama for a real Southern Christmas experience.  Fully decked out in the best Christmas spirit, Longing For Home Bed and Breakfast hosted its third annual Old-Time Christmas Celebration Open House on 11 December 2010. 
 

This event treated the public to an 1880's Christmas celebration.  Following Rogersville, Alabama’s annual Yuletide celebration held in a historic 1881 Presbyterian Church, Longing For Home opened its doors and invited guests and friends to step back in time.  Dressed in authentic 1880's style clothing (including waist coat and top hat as well as an emerald ball gown) Bill and Betty greeted their guests to an evening of fun, food and entertainment.

   

                                                                               
 The Konig Family provided seasonal entertainment throughout the evening performing (with all joining in) such songs as Silent Night, Jingle Bells, and many other traditional songs of the season. 



To the surprise of all, Santa along      with Mrs. Claus and one of their helpful elves came by for a visit and stayed long enough to bringChristmas cheer to all – as well as to dance a few ballroom dance steps. 


Folks from the Rogersville and Florence Alabama area were joined at this celebration by several Longing For Home Bed and Breakfast guests from across North Alabama (Scottsboro, Grassy and Lake Guntersville) who booked reservations specifically to take part in this great annual celebration.

  
 


Come next year, if you are looking for a unique Christmas Season experience; consider joining us on December 3, 2011 at Longing For Home for a 1880s style Christmas Celebration.








Have a blessed Day.
