About this event
Christmas is a time when a person’s thoughts turn to family gatherings, decorated trees, turkey dinners, brightly wrapped gifts and holiday traditions. Like today, children of long ago grew more excited as the holiday season drew near – wondering what the hung stocking would hold, what new toy may be under the tree, what shape the newly cut tree would take, and what goodies the family would bake. Through this Museum-led program, we provide an opportunity for visitors to learn about 1910 settler life and, in particular, about family traditions during the holiday season. Explore holiday traditions, see what types of gifts were given, and make an old-fashioned craft. Recommended for ages five years and up; families welcome! Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Registration closes on December 15 at 11:59 pm
