About this Event

Christmas in the New England colonies was, for the most part, just another day. Celebrating Christmas was outlawed in most of New England. Puritans and Protestants detested the entire celebration, and likened it to "pagan rituals."

But, some colonists enjoyed an array of festivities, such as singing carols, decorating their homes, & hosting feasts.

Join Velya and Ehris, the mother/daughter Grounded Goodwife duo, for:

- walnut boat races (to find out if you'll live to see 2020!)

- apple peel throwing (to determine your spouse)

- apple howling (for a bountiful harvest)

- a group wassail carol

- a DIY Apple Cinnamon Sugar Scrub
