Historic Celebrations of Christmas and Light
Discover holiday traditions rooted in family and community.
GRADES 1–8 Visit our authentically-decorated 1890 Farm House and discover through primary sources and hands-on activities, how families and communities celebrated. Students will spend time in the livestock barns learning how winter care of animals differs from other times of the year, and that even on holidays, the farm work must be done. Dip a candle to take home and discover its significance as a source of light for the long winter nights and many holiday celebrations, including Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa.
