It is hard to imagine the cold temperatures of December, but Christmas will be here before we know it. Who is Belsnickle? According to Pennsylvania-Dutch folklore, Belsnickle would visit children for nearly two weeks, starting the week before Christmas and continuing until New Years. But, Belsnickle was definitely not Santa Claus. He was an ugly character that frightened children when he traveled from house to house brandishing his switches. For the naughty children Belsnickle would whip them with his switches, while good children received cake and candles. By the early 20 th century, this tradition transformed from a single Belsnickle to a group of Belsnicklers, no longer carrying whips. The rowdy merriment would begin after dark and end before midnight. In celebration of this unique Pennsylvania-Dutch tradition, beginning Saturday, December 1st and continuing through Sunday December 2nd, over 15 romantic Lancaster County inns will be on display, beautifully decorated for the Christmas season and offering special treats to tour guests. Tour attendees will receive a ticket asking them to watch out for the Belsnickle.
