Countdown to Christmas...Day 4

There are more than a dozen "little towns of Bethlehem" throughout the United States. However, there is one in particular located in Pennsylvania that has declared itself "Christmas City, U.S.A." Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is an old steel town but beginning the day after Thanskgiving and lasting through New Years Eve, this town transforms itself into a Christmas wonderland complete with strolling carolers, rides in horse drawn carriages and a Christmas marketplace, Christkindlemarkt, that is recognized by Travel and Leisure Magazine as one of the top holiday markets in the world. Perched above the entire town is an 81 foot long star made of steel and lighted so that it can be seen from nearly 30 miles away.
