In the United States, the majority of people consider Easter a Christian holiday. However, as with many holidays, Easter is the result of syncretism between Christianity and pre-Christian pagan religions. In fact, this mélange of rites and rituals shrouded in the past is also the result of other popular holidays such as Christmas and Halloween. Even the word Easter derives from a pagan festival named Eostre that was celebrated during the vernal equinox. Additionally, England’s venerable Bede first referenced a pre-Christian goddess with the same name of Eostre in the 7th Century. Nevertheless, today, many people take the opportunity to visit their preferred place of worship, and one of the most picturesque churches in New England to do so is the Stowe Community Church.
Stowe Community Church
At Stowe Country Homes, all of our properties are located close to the historic village center. If you wish to attend a Sunday service during your stay in your Vermont rental property, the Stowe Community Church located on Main Street is one of the best options. In 1830, members of the Universalist sect built the church, yet other denominations that included the Congregationalists, Methodists, and Baptists eventually combined congregants to create one of the first non-denominational churches in the country. Even if you worship in a different manner, the historic building deserves a visit, especially when strolling along quaint Main Street.
All across the United States, craft beer has become quite the phenomenon over the last two decades. This is quite apparent in Vermont, where visitors can hardly take a few steps without finding a craft beer in one form or another. At the Alchemist, even if you do not enjoy the suds, this popular brewery has the ability make everyone a fan. If you do love beer, try the Heady Topper; it is one of the most celebrated beers in the entire country. In addition to the beer, visitors can take a tour of the facility, then stay for the evening and listen to live music.
The small mountain village of Stowe has events and happenings all-year round, and just like the winter season, people flock to the trails in search of adventure. One of the main events during the springtime is the annual Closing Day Celebration, a day when the entire town comes together and enjoys one last day on the slopes of Stowe Mountain. This annual event sometimes coincides with the Easter holiday, and when it does, visitors can take a gondola to the top of the mountain and watch the sun rise.
