Bethlehem, PA is called “The Christmas City” for a reason that is plain and simple: we LOVE our holidays! Walking up Main Street feels like walking through a Christmas wonderland with lights, wreaths, and Christmas trees scattered throughout. Bethlehem hosts a variety of Christmas events and festivals that are open to the public. Moravian College even offers some holiday events of their own to get students into the holiday spirit. To get the full Christmas City experience, I have a few events listed below to check out at Bethlehem during the Christmas Season.

The winter holidays are coming, but unfortunately, you’re room doesn’t look festive. And when you’re on a budget, it’s probably out of your price range to buy a $100 giant, inflatable snow globe—plus, it may annoy your housemate and block the path to the kitchen, which is where the cookies are. Nevertheless, beautiful decorations are possible with these 6 easy ideas!
