Going to Colonial Williamsburg during the Christmas season is just rich with old traditions and full of fun for the whole family, or even by purchase cheapest viagra yourself. Walking around outside when it’s cooler out is invigorating. Seeing all the holiday decorations up and people dressed up in traditional holiday costumes and hearing the traditional carols just make you feel good. There is so much history to see, you have to make a few trips. I plan on taking some time off from my job here at Ciniva Systems during the Christmas season and doing just that.
The Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown Victory Center history museums will offer a glimpse of 17th-and 18th-century holiday seasons during “A Colonial Christmas,” December 1, 2009, through January 3, 2010.
A short holiday film and special interpretive programs will compare and contrast English Christmas customs of the period with how the season might have been observed in the early years of Americas first English colony at the Jamestown Settlement.
Beginning each day at 11am, 1 and 3pm, guided tours of Jamestown Settlement’s re-created outdoor interpretive areas, will engage visitors in ongoing holiday presentations.
In the re-created colonial fort, visitors will encounter the festive 17th-century traditions of an English Christmas that may have existed only as a memory, considering the English colonists’ struggle to survive. Historical interpreters will adorn the re-created church and fort buildings with greenery and demonstrate fancy cooking.
Like Jamestown colonists, soldiers of the American Revolution had little opportunity for Christmas merriment. At the Yorktown Victory Center, hear accounts of Christmas and winter in military encampments during the American Evolution and glimpse holiday preparations on a 1780s farm.
The Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center are open 9am to 5pm daily year-round; closed Christmas and New Year’s days. Check out the fantastic website that Ciniva designed for them for more details at historyisfun.org
