Colonial Christmas and Candlighting


December 8, 2018

Celebrate Christmas on the Carolina Frontier. Join in the “Procession of the Yule Log,” decorating with greenery, early American carols, and English country dancing beautifully set amidst the backdrop of the 18th-century Backcountry farm. At dusk, gather for the traditional candlelighting service. Enjoy colonial hospitality with a taste of Christmas pudding and hot gingered apple cider.
