Location: A Colonial Christmas
From the first "American" Christmas celebration held by English colonists still sailing towards the new land in 1606 to a look at the average traditions of a 1780's Virginia farmer, A Colonial Christmas is an interesting glimpse into America's holiday history.

I could do it again next week! Having the 2 day pass was great, but a 3 day one would also have been good too. We were there at 9 each day and left at 5 on the first day and 4 on the second day. Did half the park each time. Needed the 3rd day to take in the plays and events that the park offered. We were looking at buildings when jefferson, or washington or the govenor were speaking at the tavern or courthouse. You just couldn't be in two places at once. It rained on our first day and they let us in early to different things so weather was not a problem.

If you are into learning about our nation's beginning, start here! More information than you can take in, in just one day. Get info from visitors' center or chamber of commerce before you plan your day(s) because not all activities are scheduled each and every day. Be prepared to walk and not all buildings have air conditioning, though they have done a fair job of providing a/c in several places. Governors' mansion a must see. Take a walk back into history.

We enjoyed this, even though it was a lot of walking. We recommend attending an orientation available at the entrance to historical williamsburg, which really gives you a good history of the town and its restoration. The guided tour through the governor's palace was very nice. We had at king's tavern. Great food. We tasted homemade beer from a barrel that was a wheat and nut blend. Very good. Homemade root beer was very good also.
