Christmas Season Celebrations
in Starksboro

December 22nd

Our Annual
Candle Light Service
at 7:30 pm

Starksboro Village Meeting House - Lighting of the Chandelier by Kevin Hanson, the grandson of Ruth Carpenter Hanson who spearheaded a group of Starksboro residents to acquire the Meeting House and preserve it for future generations in 1957.

The Christmas Candle Light Service has been a Starksboro Village Meeting House tradition since the 1960's. The service is held in a sanctuary where electric lights are a secondary way to light the space. The primary light source is a kerosene lamp chandelier. The non-denominational service, which centers around the Christmas Story and the popular candle lighting ceremony, is held in a sanctuary where little has changed from when it was last used as an active Church in the early 1900's, offering a nostalgic glimpse into the past.
