Join us at Henricus for an early celebration of Christmastide -- the period of traditional Christmas merriment and festivities from December 25 - January 6. Discover how colonists celebrated Christmas in the 17th century, both in the new colony of Virginia and back home in England. Make and eat a Twelfth Night cake, drink cider and go wassailing (caroling) in the English colonial settlement, play festive games and make Christmas-themed crafts to take home and enjoy all season long.
