Synopsis: Bring the warm glow of Christmas past into your home with nostalgic Williamsburg flavor. The perfect holiday gift, this gorgeously illustrated, handsomely designed book will become a family keepsake and a seasonal celebration of our nation’s past. Packed with traditions, crafts, recipes, and customs that span three hundred years of American Christmases, this volume traces the rise of the holiday from colonial times to the present. Exclusively shot reenactment photography and beautifully illustrated history bring traditions of yesteryear such as make-a-wish holiday tree tags, handcrafted hot chocolate, Victorian style paper chains, and hand-crafted clove orange pomanders straight to your family’s living room for a more meaningful family holiday season.
 
Also showcased are Colonial Williamsburg festivities and traditions such the Grand Illumination—which launches the Christmas season with fireworks, wreath-making workshops, Christmas concerts, recipes, and more. You’ll feel like you are in Williamsburg with luminous photographs of historic places, artifacts from the Williamsburg craft museum, and hands-on activities for kids. Turn the pages and watch the sights and smells come alive—Christmas has come!

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is a nonprofit educational organization that works to restore Virginia’s colonial capital.
