The Evolution of Christmas Traditions in America

When: Nov. 23-Jan. 4 2016

Why do we hang stockings on chimneys and kiss under the mistletoe? Take a walk through history as we explore past Christmas traditions and their influence on the holiday we know today. The Owens-Thomas House will be decked out to help you experience the simplicity of a Regency Christmas during the tenure of the Richardsons, the growing sophistication of the antebellum customs practiced by the Owenses, and the more recognizable Victorian holiday as the Thomases would have enjoyed it.
