Holidays at the House – Sunday, November 17, 2013

Holidays at the House Flyer

Step back in time at Woodville Plantation, as this living history museum presents a special holiday event.  On Sunday, November 17, 2013, visitors are invited to experience the holidays in a different light with candlelight tours of Woodville Plantation.  From noon to 8:00 pm, the celebrations of an 18th century Christmas will come to life with costumed guides, holiday displays and traditional decorations.  Guests will learn how 18th century holiday customs such as Twelfth Night, Boxing Day and the firing of Christmas guns differ from our modern-day celebrations. Included will be a magnificent display of the full table feast celebrated during Twelfth Night.  Admission prices are $5.00 per person, free for kids under 6.  For more information, click on the flyer above.
