A Colonial Christmas at the Jamestown Settlement & Yorktown Victory Center in Williamsburg, VA

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, perfect for any trip

Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown will both present various exhibits on this interesting topic. Learn how food was gathered, preserved and prepared, about the differences between Virginia's English colonial culture and the Powhatan Indians' culture, and what it was like to be a soldier during the American Revolution. This Winter experience explores the roots of the original American Christmas and the difficulties involved in the unlikely endeavor. Yorktown will sponsor a lighted boat parade and tree lighting on December 1, so don't miss out on the chance to be a part of this festive annual event!
