Christmas in the New England colonies was, for the most part, just another day.  Celebrating Christmas was outlawed in most of New England.  Puritans and Protestants detested the entire celebration, and likened it to “pagan rituals”.  But, some colonists enjoyed an array of festivities such as singing carols, decorating their home & hosting feasts.  Join Velya and Ehris, the mother/daughter Grounded Goodwife duo for a virtual look at traditions such as apple peel throwing (to find a spouse), apple seed prophecies, a group wassail carol and more.  The pair will also show you how to make a DIY apple cinnamon sugar scrub to make at home.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
