Presented by Henricus Historical Park

An Afternoon of Songs, Decorations, Food and Merriment throughout Henricus! Your afternoon will begin in 1619 and the very early Christmas traditions in the VA colonies. Then it will be 1771 and the first Christmas for Revolutionary War patriots who are able to return home. At this point it is the 1860s and the Civil War, but also the time period when Christmas trees and Santa were coming into American homes. IT will then be time to have that very important chat with Father Christmas! History can be such fun!
