|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until December 15, 2018

Holly on the mantels, pine-scents, lantern and candle-lit rooms will welcome in the Christmas season festivities at the Gregg House. Christmas on the frontier brought many challenges as families sought to maintain their holiday customs.  Discover the simple traditions of ornaments made from lace, buttons, strings of apples, cherished homemade cloth gifts, molasses cookies and the story of St. Nicholas all celebrated on Christmas Eve. Learn about the early days of Illinois as we commemorate the Bicentennial of Illinois.  You can even enjoy a long eared mule drawn wagon ride on December 15th!  Children can make a frontier style craft to take home.
