Impulcity.com has named the top 17 Christmas towns and Bethlehem, Pa is number 1.
“Bethlehem has gained its name of “Christmas City U.S.A.” because it’s completely dedicated to keeping big business out of the holiday season, and sticking to original Christmas traditions,” Impulcity says. “It seems like there’s something going on every day of December to get people into the holiday spirit.”
Impulcity specifically cites Christkindlmarkt and the “epic” gingerbread competitions.
It should also be noted that Paradise, Pa. in Lancaster County ranks number 5.
“It holds the National Christmas Center of America, which even has its own store and 20,000 square feet of exhibits,” says Impulcity.
