A Sense of the Season

At Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site

It’s the holiday season! Time for bringing greenery inside our homes, wrapping presents, and getting carols stuck in our heads. Have you ever wondered when and where some of our December traditions started? Warm yourself inside the Common House and visit with educators dressed in period clothing to discover how people in the English Atlantic world celebrated the season during the 17th century. Learn about once-popular practices that have fallen out of fashion as well as those that still endure today.
