A Snow Globe Christmas at the Hamill House

Time

5:30 PM TO 7:00 PM

Location

305 Argentine St., Georgetown

Details

Join us for a unique Christmas holiday experience at the Hamill House as we share the Yule events in an outdoor setting – it will be as if you are looking inside a snow globe as the traditional events occur.

The setting is the open-air Carriage House where we will share the Yule Log history with the beloved Saint Nicholas, toast to friends and good cheer with a warm cup of wassail and hear the cherished story “T’was the Night Before Christmas”. Then, by lantern-light, we will stroll to the Library windows as we watch the candle lighting on the Christmas Tree as the stories are shared of the meaning of each.  Of course, the Silver Plume Singers will set the tone with their beautiful songs and may even lead us in a few carols before we depart. Remember – dress warmly.

Tickets $35 Members, $45 Non-Members  - Presented by www.historicgeorgetown.org
