A year round Christmas Cottage!! (pictures coming soon)
Previously known as the Engineer Cottage, this cozy room will have you singing, "over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go!" With vintage style Chritmas decor, stockings hung by the electric fireplace and pecans to crack, you will be feeling the Christmas spirit in no time.
This cottage was inspired by the German version of Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, a name most likely derived from Christ Kindl (Christ-child). The German name of the Christ Child is Christkind, commonly used in its diminutive form Christkindel. The Dutch-German protestant reform movement brought in the idea that the Christchild should be the standard bearer for Christmas. Traditionally an image used for his messenger was a young child with a golden crown who holds a tiny "Tree of Light", and brings the gifts of the Christ Child.
He carries a tiny Christmas tree and enters the house through a window left open. When he has left the presents, he rings a bell allowing the household to know of his departure. Thus "Kris Kringle" a name deriving from the German Christ Kindel is another name for Santa Clause.
So tuck in early, eat some homemade cookies and milk and get ready for Santa!
