Many of the Christmas customs we take for granted today were invented or popularized during Victorian times. In fact, they were flourishing when the Eustis Estate was built in 1878. We invite you to learn the history of Christmas while exploring the lavishly decorated mansion. Participants will create a holiday wreath, enjoy seasonal refreshments, and receive a small wrapped gift.

One adult per family admitted free, additional adults pay full price. The program is limited to 30 people.
