The 12 Days of Colonial Christmas

Christmas in the Country

There is a wonderful series of articles I found at the following site that traces the traditions and history of Christmas in Colonial times and traces the customs and attitudes backward to the “motherland”. All the pages are DEFINITELY well worth reading to get you in the mood for Old Christmas coming up in two weeks.
