Christmas Visit

Although, Hershey is famous for the chocolate candies, the main industry of this small town, we were here to see the Christmas lights the town is known to have during this holiday season. We have always wanted to spend Christmas down on the farm and this was our year for doing that. Not a relative but this family made us feel like we were a part of the yearly celebration. This page is mainly about the wonderful Frank and Carolyn Troxell family who ownes the "Inn at Westwynd Farm" bed and breakfast. It was perfect with snow on the ground and the house decorated with several trees and all kinds of holiday ornaments. Holiday music played in the morning to get us all in the spirit of Christmas as breakfast was served on special Santa dishes filled with cookies and cakes along with several courses to follow. Carolyn was very good at getting us all to join in conversation that lasted most of the morning.

This is a horse farm with 30 horses waiting patiently for someone to come to give them one of the many carrots in the red stocking hanging from their stall door on Christmas Day.

This Bed and Breakfast has donkeys, goats, alpacas and 2 young rescued yellow labs. I always try to find animal people to spend time with in case I just want to talk to them and not chatty people.
