The 2023 Pennsylvania Dutch Calendar celebrates the life and work of barn star artist Milton J. Hill (1887-1972) of Virginville, Berks County. His work featured a signature starburst pattern with an interlaced border, which has become a classic barn decoration in the region. Today these geometric representations of heavenly bodies have become symbolic of the living traditions of Pennsylvania Dutch folk culture. As a bilingual calendar, all of the months, holidays, and captions are in Pennsylvania Dutch and English for ease of use in families that wish to explore their Pennsylvania heritage.
