SCHOHARIE COUNTY — The Schoharie County Christmas for Kids is now in its fifth year of serving families during the Christmas holidays.

Local churches are hosting these Christmas events:

The 13th day-long Victorian Holiday celebration in Altamont included four winter markets, a house tour of more than 200 people, and a visit from Santa.

In the Christmas classic, It’s A Wonderful Life, performed by the Classic Theater Guild on Dec. 20, George Bailey's angel, Clarence, saves him from jumping off a bridge by showing him what his town would be like if he hadn’t lived. 

Learning about our culture, and teaching our youth their history, can help them to not only understand the past but shape a more humane society.
