“TALK OF THE TOWN” SPEAKER SERIES:

 

December 3:

Christmas tree painting 1877 by H. J. Overbeek“Legends and Traditions of the Christmas Season″ with Henry F. Callan.

The fascinating history behind the mixture of pagan, secular and Christian elements. A special time of fun and celebration for everyone.

Puritans in Sandwich and all of Cape Cod did not celebrate Christmas between 1659 and 1681 because it was illegal. With more and more immigrants coming to the New World, Christmas celebrations began to flourish in the mid-nineteenth century. Today, Sandwich residents start the Christmas season with the lighting of the Little Christmas Tree on Shawme Pond and the singing of Christmas carols in Town Hall Square in front of First Church.

Sandwich Glass Museum, Hirschmann Theater, 129 Main St. Sandwich, MA. 508-888-0251 Seating is limited. Doors open at 6:30pm, program begins at 7.*


*NOTE: Seating is limited. To reserve a seat you can pick up free tickets in advance at the Sandwich Glass Museum (until they run out). Tickets will be available 2 weeks before each scheduled talk.
