Few things are more representative of the spirit of the holidays than the food we choose to prepare, serve and share with the people we love most. It’s the time of year when we dust off old family recipes, add an extra pat of butter, and indulge in recipes that send you digging in the back corners of your cabinets for kitchen supplies. Food is how we express our love, for both the people in our lives and the cultures and traditions we share. As we celebrate the holiday season, we also celebrate the varied traditions and cultures in our community. We take a look at a few holiday traditions celebrated by families in our area and share recipes for the food and drink that make them special.
Bellefonte’s rich history is visible in its varied buildings dating to as early as 1795. As residents prepare for the annual Bellefonte Victorian Christmas celebration, we take a look at some of the historic architectural structures — Victorian and otherwise — that remain in Bellefonte.
