It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s July in south central Pennsylvania and we are bringing you an imaginary dose of colder temperatures for a Christmas in July preview of The Gettysburg Heritage Center “A Gettysburg Christmas Festival” presented by Main Street Gettysburg with support from the Gettysburg Nature Alliance, New Leaf Paper and FutureStake Inc.

The community-wide festival, scheduled for Dec. 6–8, is shaping up nicely, thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers, partners, and sponsors. Just imagine that we are a group of Santa’s elves toiling away in a workshop in the North Pole, creating a magical experience for all the good boys and girls to unveil on Christmas morning. The reality is, we are all average-sized people working in a municipal building and there is no plan to screen the past behavior of any of event-goers, but the former is a pleasant visual.

Annie Frazee is vice president of Main Street Gettysburg.
