The Northeast Georgia History Center will host two events next week: “Family Day: Victorian Christmas,” on Sunday, Dec. 10, and “Forum: Pearl Harbor,” on Tuesday, Dec. 12.
On Sunday, visit the 19th century with the Northeast Georgia History Center as we celebrate the holidays and explore the traditions of Victorian Era Christmas-tide during “Family Day: Victorian Christmas.”
Have your holiday photo made with Santa Claus by the fire, refresh yourself with hot cider, hot chocolate and cookies, and hear performances of ‘Twas the night before Christmas, as well as Christmas songs and carols. You can also make pioneer era-inspired ornaments and decorations to take home or put on the History Center Christmas tree as we explore holiday traditions with performances, hands-on activities, living history interpretation and demonstrations.
This Family Day will be held from 1-4 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
During the forum on Tuesday, Dec. 12, the History Center’s own Executive Director Glen Kyle will speak about that cataclysmic “day of infamy” 76 years ago: Pearl Harbor. Kyle is the History Center’s resident WWII expert, having taught continuing education courses on the subject and having authored the book Hall County in WWII. The forum will begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free for members and is $3 for nonmembers.
