Those Places Thursday: Christmas in July :)
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas - if you're in Bethlehem, Connecticut. The Abbey of St. Regina Laudis is home to a famous Neapolitan Creche. If you've ever thought your religious ancestors were boring, the Abbey's life proves how wrong you are. While the site is best known for the Creche, it has numerous other claims to fame. There's a working cattle herd on site. Mother Delores Hart starred alongside Elvis. Need I say more? The Abbey has only existed since 1947, but if your ancestors or relatives were members, you're in for a treat.
