Welcome to Thursday Doors, a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing your link in the comments below, anytime between 12:01 am Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time).
Before I get into my post, I’d like to take care of a little Thursday Doors business. As you may know, I’ve been sharing the link to this post in advance in a sidebar widget on my blog. Rather than list it under the current badly worded explanation, I was thinking it would be nice to have a Thursday Doors badge. Of course, that means we need a contest. I will post the rules for the contest tomorrow. Check back if you’re interested.
Also, remember that next week, everyone is invited to share a collection of your favorite doors from 2020.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled post.
It should come as no surprise that plans for the holiday season are in flux due to the virus that is back on the rise in the US.
I have shared photos from Old Sturbridge Village in previous years, but we may not be able to visit this year. OSV is holding a “modified” Christmas by Candlelight, but due to COVID travel restrictions, we may not be able to attend. If we are able to visit, there won’t be as many doors to photograph. The gingerbread house competition is being held online this year, and I suspect the Bethlehem Village tour will be a carefully scripted walk, if the building is even open.
The event is very special to us, and regardless of the opportunities to collect photos, we are hoping to be able to walk through a nineteenth century village that is decorated for Christmas. We bought tickets in advance, with the idea in mind that if we aren’t able to attend, we’d still be happy supporting OSV.
However, this is Thursday Doors, and virus or not, I want to share some holiday spirit. Fortunately, when we visited in 2019, I took an abundance of pictures. I can’t promise that every picture in the gallery is new, and some are slightly different versions of ones I shared last year, but I think we all get a little leeway this year. These are from the grounds, the gingerbread house contest and the Bethlehem Village display.
