Old Sturbridge Village lights up the holidays You’ve got one more weekend (and a Friday night) to check out Old Sturbridge Village’s Christmas by Candlelight in Sturbridge. That means four more days to see one of the area’s most historic attractions all lit up, take the kids to see Santa and vote for your favorite creation in the Gingerbread House Contest. The main attraction, at least from a kids’ point of view – and for the adults who are young at heart – is North Pole Village. And if you’re at the North Pole, you have to stop and see Santa. You’ll wait a while, depending on the crowds, but this is no quick “how do you do.” Santa Claus at OSV takes his time to get to know each child, establishing a rapport with the little ones and their parents. Kids can expect 10-15 minutes with the Big Guy, and they’ll get a candy cane to boot. Another popular display comes courtesy the Worcester Model Railroaders, based in Dudley. The exhibit has been expanded to include G-scale model trains this year, and while you’re there, you can enter a raffle to win a smaller, HO-scale layout, ready to go with trains. There’s plenty more, and you can check it all out Friday-Sunday, Dec. 16-18, and Friday, Dec. 23, 3-9 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults, $14 youth 4-12, free for kids 3 and under.
