Sherbrooke Village prepares for an old-fashioned, 19th century Christmas

November 22, 2017 - Aaron Beswick, The Chronicle Herald

“It was all hands on deck Wednesday at Sherbrooke Village because on Friday they expect 7,500 people to fill the Guysborough County restoration site that aims to recreate 19th-century life for the kickoff to its annual old-fashioned Christmas.

Though the village is part of the Nova Scotia Museum and has paid employees, the holiday event is a huge community effort. Some 75 volunteers from the small communities surrounding Sherbrooke put in many hours each fall to prepare for the two weekend sessions.”

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – literally.  Though it’s only early November, people all over Nova Scotia are getting ready for the big day by planning Christmas Markets, putting up decorations and waiting for the snow to fall.  And what better way to celebrate than by getting out of the city and immersing yourself in a fully decked out Winter Wonderland?”

“It’s a good night for heart-warming, really, and it seems I’ve come to the right place for that sort of thing.  After driving two hours in November drizzle, I’m in need of some warmth.  Sherbrooke Village, a nook in Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia, preserved to be authentic to the late 1800s, is hosting an old fashioned Victorian Christmas. … I can’t think of a better place to shake off the November doldrums and start thinking about Christmas.”
