Conversations with the Past
Talk: Merriment and Memories: How we Decorated, Celebrated and Made Moments to Remember
Speaker: Jillian Mulder
7pm on ZOOM, registration link below
It’s time to deck the halls, string the lights, and prepare the feasts. Soon, houses and whole streets will be aglow with white and colored-lights. Trees will be brought inside and decorated while wrapped presents are placed beneath them. As you sit by a fire or get cozy with some hot chocolate and warm fuzzy socks, do you reminisce about the celebrations or traditions of years past? Join us as we take a look back at the festivities and events over the last century that have brought us together as a community during this special holiday season.
