Kris Kringle's Candlelight Christmas

Kris Kringle's Candlelight Christmas

Burritt on the Mountain opens its mansion for an intimate experience with Kris Kringle (that’s the fancy name for Santa Claus) every year at the beginning of the holiday season. For a few hours on this magical night, children can visit with the big man himself for a fireside chat.

More than 600 candles set the mood for the evening. Holiday music fills the halls and kids and their families participate in an authentic, historic Christmas, including:

  • Making decorative strings of popcorn and cranberries
  • Indulging in cider, cookies and figgy pudding
  • Creating handmade cards and ornaments
