Are There Holiday Lights at The PNC Bank Arts Center This Year?

Are there going to be holiday lights spectacular at PNC Bank Arts Center, this year 2010?

Hi,
I am sorry to tell you that this wonderful Holiday Lighting drive through event is no longer held at the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel.

The last year the event was held was in 2008.

Valentine's Day with kids

by Ivannia
(NJ)

Is there any place(hotel) in NJ where we can spend valentine's day with our son?

Something no so romantic but still with the "love theme" Thanks

Hi Ivannia;
As you probably know, Valentines hotel getaways offering a "Love Theme" for families with kids are not popular. Having said that,I suggest trying one of the larger hotel chains that are Child Friendly and offer dining such as Hilton, Marriott, etc.

Here are two specific places that you may want to look into:

Crystal Springs Resort
Route 94
Vernon, New Jersey 07462
(973) 827-5996

Ocean Place Resort and Spa
One Ocean Boulevard
Long Branch, NJ 07740
800-411-6493

What do do on Christmas Day?

I would like to know what there is to do in new jersey on Christmas day. Is anything going on besides Washington's Crossing? Any place open?

Hi;
Christmas Day is a major family holiday and as a result many entertainment venues are closed. You might want to try movie theatres, though, they are open on Christmas Day.

How do I get something postmarked from Valentine, New Jersey?

by Laura
(Illinois)

Where do I send mail to be postmarked from Valentine, New Jersey?

Hi Laura:
In checking with the Postal Service, I have been told that Valentine, NJ is not one of the designated communities with "Love Themed" post marks.

However, if you are simply looking for a community with a Valentine post mark I suggest you visit USPS Love Themed Postmark Communities for information on how you can send a letter with a Valentine Postmark.

Regards,

Are There Any Old Fashioned Christmas Day Events on Christmas Day?

by Deborah Richter
(Monmouth Junction, NJ, US)

Are there any events going on Christmas Day that would feel like an old fashioned Christmas. A place where the whole town celebrates. Caroling, horse carriage rides, piano singing, etc..

Thank you,
Debbie

Hi Debbie;

It's hard to find anything at all happening on Christmas Day, especially town events that celebrate Christmas in an old fashioned style.

However there is one event that continues year after year on Christmas Day.

The Annual Christmas Delaware River Crossing Reenactment
December 25, 2010
Washington Crossing
1112 River Roa
Washington Crossing, PA
215-493-4076
On Christmas Day every year, re-enactors assemble at Washington Crossing State Park, Pennsylvania, and make their way across the Delaware River to New Jersey. The annual event commemorates the Christmas Day crossing made by Gen. George Washington and his troops in 1776. It was an historic undertaking that resulted in defeat of the Hessian troops in the Battle of Trenton. You can attend this year's event in Washington Crossing State Park, Pennsylvania. Depending on the weather, the crossing will begin at 1 p.m. The event/village activities will occur from 11am to 3pm, with the crossing time occurring around 1:00 pm, beginning at the Pennsylvania side at Washington Crossing State Park.

Merry Christmas
