Creating Christmas

November 29 @ 7:00 pm

Find out about Creating Christmas on Tuesday, November 29 at 7pm. By the mid-1600s, the centuries-old European celebration of Christmas was such a drunken, bawdy, public affair that the early Puritans arriving in America put an immediate ban on any Christmas celebrations in their Godly communities. New York newspapers in the early 1800s illustrate that Christmas was far from a silent night and instead was a night of crime and terror. How then did the Christmas holiday become such a treasured tradition of gift giving, Santa Claus, family feasts, and domestic bliss? Join historian and archivist Mickey DiCamillo as he explains how the holiday was tamed, domesticated, and transformed into something uniquely American. Co-sponsored by Friends of the Hickory Corner Library, Friends of the West Windsor Library, and Hightstown Library Association.
