How are you spending this post-holidays winter weekend? Here are a few ideas! (Hint: There actually are a few lingering holiday events if you just can’t let go yet.)
Fire and Frost Fun at Peddler’s Village
When: Friday, January 8 and Saturday, January 9
Where: Street Road and Route 263, Lahaska
If you haven’t had a chance to go to Peddler’s Village yet (or want to go again) this season, this is your last chance before the lights and decor come down. PLUS, there will be a Village-wide display of more than 20 ice sculptures! Fast-paced, high energy live ice carvings will be performed by Ice Concepts Friday at 6 p.m. and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. There will also be a family-friendly Jack Frost scavenger hunt. And, indoor dining will be open again!
A Very Furry Christmas Sesame Place
When: Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10
Where: Sesame Place, 100 Sesame Road, Langhorne

A Longwood Christmas
When: Now though January 17; Gardens open daily, 10am-11pm; timed admissions tickets are required.
Where: Longwood Gardens, 1001 Longwood Road, Kennett Square
A Longwood Christmas has been extended through January 17, and as of Monday, January 4, indoor attractions including the Conservatory, Peirce-du Pont House, Webb Farmhouse and the Pumphouse will be reopened. Take in the famed Garden Railway, a display of 31 locomotives, steam engines, diesel engines, specialty engines and even childhood favorite, Thomas the Tank Engine! Becoming a “tunnel of light,” for the holidays, it is a fun way to add delight to the season.
