It’s the most wonderful time of the year! If that song wasn’t stuck in your head (like it is in mine), it is now. Sorry! But that’s the theme this week – so many cookies, mugs of hot chocolate, and jingle bells your head will be spinning. Take your pick this week from charitable celebrations, fun tours, family fun, and cocktail-making classes. If you’re ambitious enough, you can do it all.

Christmas Cookies

Eat some cookies, for a good cause. The Quakertown Neighborhood Association will hold their annual Cookies, Cocoa & Caring event at the historic Quakertown Train Station on Thursday, December 4 from 6 to 8 pm. The association will be collecting donated gift cards to local stores at the event, to give to families of children within the Quakertown Community School District who are in need. Get rewarded with free hot chocolate and cookies to start off the holiday season.

Take a tour. The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance is putting a spin on their traditional farm tour and trying something new: a tour of Bucks County Brewery and Hewn Spirits in Pipersville this Saturday, December 6, from 2 to 4 pm. Sign up here and bring an appetizer to share! Read the back-story on both business in our articles: Bucks County Brewery & Hewn Spirits.

crab legsForget about Turkey for a minute. It’s not summer anymore, but Crabfest at the Vintage Grille is back this weekend! A pound and a half of snow crab clusters, melted butter, old bay hand cut fries, fresh corn on the cob and coleslaw will be available Friday through Sunday, December 5 through December 7, while supplies last.

Fun at the farm. Head to the Fulper Family Farmstead in Lambertville for their Old-fashioned Holiday Farmstead Event on Friday, December 5, from 6 to 8 pm. They’ll have a bonfire, hot chocolate and cider, food, a special visit from Santa Claus, hayrides, holiday lighted tractors, and holiday music. Plus, some of their cows just calved, so you can meet the babies.

Drive up the road to Pennington for the Holiday Open House Weekend at the Farm Market at Blue Moon Acres, Friday through Sunday, December 5-7, where you’ll find beer, wine and food samples, a chance to meet local producers, and live music, plus special discounts for the occasion.

Cooking for a crowd. Armed with the skills learned from the three cooking classes this weekend, you’ll be ready for people to show up at your house in droves.

Then mosey over to Villa Milagro for their Wine & Appetizer Workshop, from 12 to 5 pm, Saturday, December 6. You’ll learn how to whip up appetizers with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, and as a bonus, you get to sample the vineyard’s wines while doing so.

Last, get some holiday cocktails under your belt at Dad’s Hat Rye Distillery’s Holiday 1900357_746303092126184_7879651934030724761_oCocktail Class, also on Saturday, December 6, from 4 to 6 pm.
