Grass Valley, California Cornish Christmas is tonight, Friday, December 12th, 2014 and next Friday night!

Tonight and next Friday night is the 47th annual Cornish Christmas celebrations in Grass Valley, California.  Last year was the first one that I've been to,  and it was delightful!

Imagine life in another era, where men and women worked hard, had little, but cherished  the simple pleasures of hearty food and drink, good song, and a warm fire, with family and friends.

This Grass Valley popular annual celebration has chestnuts actually roasting over an open fire on the street in front of the Holbrook Hotel, the Grass Valley Cornish Christmas Carol Choir singing, food, live music, crafts, and other merriment.

One highlight we saw last year was seeing a young boy playing the violin in period costume!
