A Victorian Holiday
December 7, 2013
1 – 3 p.m.
Did you know that having a spider in your Christmas Tree was good luck? Since Prince Albert first brought a Christmas tree into the palace, the Victorian era has been steeped in Germanic holiday traditions. Join the North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport for a festive afternoon filled with activities for all ages. Make creative and unconventional ornaments while enjoying eggnog and cookies. Afterward, in the exhibit hall, learn about our Gilded Age Shipwreck, The City of Houston, and how a storm almost ruined Christmas! Appropriate for all ages; $3.00/person. Call the Museum at (910)457-0003 to register. 204 E. Moore St. Southport, NC 28461.
