Held every December, what is the name of Pennsbury Manor's annual candlelight tours? 
Holly Nights. A community tradition for over 25 years, this joyous feast for the senses offers crackling fires, hot-mulled cider, dancing shadows, and the merry sounds of carolers strolling the grounds. So gather friends and family. Come toss a green sprig on our Yule log bonfire, make your wish for the coming New Year. Step back into the glow of torches, candles, and luminaries...the bustle of colonial craftspeople (always happy to chat, mind you!)...the good cheer of noels and wassailing songs ... and - if Old Man Winter wills it - the crunch of frosty pathways underfoot.
