Happy Everything December 2023

"I want an official Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot Ranger Model Air Rifle!" - Ralphie Parker, A Christmas Story

What do YOU want for Christmas - or Hanukkah - this year? This Wanderings issue presents several opportunities to sit on Santa's lap to let him know. (Hopefully a nicer Santa than the department store one in the film referenced above.) This week's cover photo was pulled from the archives in honor of the Moravian Village of Hope's upcoming lantern tour.

Crafts, games, music, dance, wine, beer, cheese, cookies, ugly sweaters and even alpacas await you in the coming days and weeks in Warren County. And that's not all!

So Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and Happy Wanderings!
