Historic Bridgeton, New Jersey is hosting a Holiday house tour on Saturday, December 5, 2009, and I’m excited because I’ve got the weekend off.
There also will be a Festival of Lights at Sunset Lake both on Friday, December 4,2009 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm and Saturday December 5th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
We visited this quaint city earlier this year in the spring and I was delighted to photograph such beautifully preserved homes.
One resident even invited us into his home when he saw us taking photos of his home. A musician for many years, he played a song for us on his grand piano. The CD he recorded is also in a photo. This was the first time we learned of the Christmas House tour in December, his home being amongst the homes on tour.
I said, it would depend on the weather as many a time in December there has been snowstorms.
