Christmas Through the Centuries

The 17th through 20th centuries in England, the American colonies, and the United States transformed Christmas into what we know today. Explore what Christmas looked like, smelled like, and sounded like to Virginians throughout these centuries. Your journey through time will end with a greeting from Father Christmas!

Later in the evening, wander under the moonlight through one of the oldest English settlements in North America. Candles will flicker from every window, fireplaces will crackle in timber-framed houses, and bonfires will help chase away the winter chill. Enjoy a forest of festive greenery as Henricus puts on our finest for an Old World Yuletide!
