Burritt on the Mountain Candlelight Christmas starts tonight

HUNTSVILLE – Burritt on the Mountain is a fascinating place to visit regardless of the season, but there is just something extra special about Christmas on the mountain.

Burritt on the Mountain is a very festive place to visit during the holidays. From the beautiful mansion decorated with a variety of Christmas trees, to the grounds, cabins and old church that are decked out for the holidays, this is a must-see during the Christmas season.

Burritt also hosts several special events during the holidays, and one of their favorite traditional holiday events is back. The Burritt on the Mountain Candlelight Christmas 2019 will be held Dec. 6 and 7, 5-9 p.m.

Burritt comes alive with the sights, sounds and smells of a traditional Christmas. Cabins are decorated with historic ambiance and the sounds of traditional music fill the air throughout the park.  String cranberries and popcorn, make paper punch ornaments, create handmade cards and ice cookies to kick off the holiday season.

Don’t miss Kris Kringle in the mansion from 5-8 for that annual photograph. It is certainly an event for young and old to enjoy.

The Holiday Magic Dinners will be held Dec 12-14. This is one of Burritt’s most important and magical fundraisers. Guest enjoy a holiday dinner in the upscale atmosphere of the Burritt Mansion or the family style warmth of the cabins in the historic Park.

For questions and to make your reservations please call Stephanie Timberlake at 256-512-0141.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas at Burritt on the Mountain with the Sanders Family Christmas, Dec. 18-22.

Southern Rogue Theatre Company and Burritt on the Mountain pair together to bring this traditional favorite to the community. Conceived by Alan Bailey and penned by Connie Ray, this famous sequel of Smoke on the Mountain returns to the Old Country Church at Burritt on the Mountain.

You’ll return to Mount Pleasant, North Carolina, on Christmas Eve of 1941. Reverend Oglethorpe has invited the Sanders to the Baptist Church to sing and witness, thereby getting the congregation into the down-home holiday spirit before the boys, including one of the Sanders’ own, ship off to World War II.

The congregation will hear more than two-dozen Christmas carols, many of them vintage hymns, and hilarious yuletide stories from the more or less devout Sanders family members.

The play is set in a church which makes the Old Country Church the perfect venue.
