Christmas at the Mansion

Kindergarten and 1st grade

90 minutes (One Visit: 2 hours)

Offered: Monday thru Friday in December 


Come take a special tour of the David Davis Mansion when it’s decorated for Christmas in the Victorian style. Learn about the origins of some of your favorite holiday traditions, and others that may be new to you. How does the Christmas you celebrate today look both similar and different to the Christmas of the 1800’s? We’ll end your visit with a reading of The Night Before Christmas, which was published in 1823, and well known to families during the time. This special field trip is a fun way to wrap up your fall semester before kids go home for winter break!
