‘Twas the Night Before Christmas: American Christmas Traditions
December 14, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The fascinating real-life story of The Night Before Christmas chimes to life as told by Martina Mathisen, along with the stories of our American Christmas Traditions. Why do we kiss under mistletoe? Why do we decorate with poinsettias? Where did the jolly older man in the red suit come from anyway? And so many more traditions were explained! Join us Thursday, December 14 at 5:00 p.m. at the Charles B. Phillips Library located on 6 N. Jackson Street in Newark. Open to the public.
