In this particular little town of Bethlehem, nestled in the northern region of New Hampshire’s White Mountains, you are not likely to come across three kings or a baby born in a manger. But just as in the biblical town, Bethlehem boasts its own glowing beacon in winter with the dominating presence of Mount Washington reflecting sunlight from its snow-capped peak. The residents here consider their home the “Star of the White Mountains,” a sleepy town that takes pride in its artistic community and being a gateway to a number of outdoor recreation activities. In the weeks leading up to the holidays, Bethlehem becomes a kind of staging area for those preparing to embrace the Christmas spirit.
