Pretty, isn’t it?
It’s the beautiful and rustic Ahwahnee Hotel at Yosemite National Park, and we plan to spend some time there during Christmas.
Specifically, stepping back in time at the Bracebridge Dinner.
Here’s a description of the Dinner, a holiday tradition at Yosemite:
The Bracebridge Dinner is an elegant and artistic four-hour pageant of classic carols, Renaissance rituals and entertainment of the Middle Ages. Over 100 players create the roles of the Squire and his family, their servants, the Lord of Misrule, minstrels and other performers.
The Ahwahnee Dining Room serves as the Great Hall and stage for the festivities and is decked with magnificent wreaths, an elaborate Squire´s table, large banners and traditional Yuletide decorations.
The centerpiece of this revered event is a seven-course banquet of rich and wondrous dishes prepared by The Ahwahnee’s world-class culinary staff.
Doesn’t that sound like a unique and fun way to spend part of the holiday?
