The Spirit of Christmas Past: Four Centuries of Christmas in New England
When: Tuesday December 12th, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Where: Eustis Estate, 1424 Canton Avenue, Milton

For many people today, Christmas is the most important holiday of the year. But many of the customs that we take for granted as part of today’s holiday festivities and religious celebrations are actually a product of more recent history. This illustrated lecture traces the development of the celebration of Christmas, from when it was outlawed in seventeenth-century New England through the beginning of the twentieth century, when all the trappings of a traditional Christmas were in place.

Kenneth C. Turino, manager of community engagement and exhibitions at Historic New England, tells the story of how Christmas was transformed from a rowdy celebration to a family-centered event. Learn how Christmas trees became popular, halls were decked, and Santa Claus came to town. Refreshments will be served following the presentation.

This event is $10 for Historic New England members and $15 for nonmembers. Registration is required. Please call 617-994-6600 for more information or buy online: http://shop.historicnewengland.org/EUS-CHRISTMAS-6-10560/
