American Holiday Customs & Christmas Tea
Evergreens and Dreidels: American Holiday Customs with a Very special Christmas Tea Party!
Sweet Remembrances will be beautifully appointed for the holidays and Nancy Reppert will prepare a delicious and elegant full tea. Afterward, we will have an entertaining holiday program: how did Christmas trees, gifts, vacation, carols, cookies, St. Nicholas, and a host of other traditions come to represent the season? Janeal Jaroh of Time Traveler Trunks will explore ways in which Roman customs were interpreted and converted in Europe and eventually adapted and blended by American religious and ethnic groups. This is not only the story of Christmas, but the evolution of Hanukkah in America.
