holiday_xmastree 10:30 AM  -  11:30 AM Spirit of Christmas Past: 4 Centuries of Christmas in New England Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rebecca Shea   978-468-5577   rshea@mvlc.org
   

This well-illustrated lecture traces the development of the celebration of Christmas from the time it was outlawed in the 17th c. to the beginning of the 21st c. when all the trappings of a traditional Christmas were in place. For many, the celebration of Christmas today is the most important holiday of the year. But, many of the customs we take for granted as part of the current holiday festivities and religious celebrations are actually a product of more recent history.  Ken Turino, Manager of Community Engagement and Exhibitions as Historic New England, has published several articles of the history of Christmas and speaks on the topic widely. He will look at how Christmas was transformed from a rowdy celebration to a family centered event.  Among topics discussed are how the Christmas tree became popular, halls were decked, and Santa Clause came to town. Funded by the Friends, free and open to the public.

    Contact: Rebecca Shea   978-468-5577   rshea@mvlc.org
   

One of the ironies of the American Industrial Revolution is that the entrepreneurs who built New England’s textile mills sought out independent, hard-working farm girls to work in them. Having done so, the men were continually surprised by the spirit and grit of the work force they had assembled. These young women were not only the country’s first large-scale industrial labor force but also the biggest gatherings yet of women without men. By bringing thousands of unmarried, unaccompanied women together and putting money in their pockets, the Boston Brahmins who bankrolled New England’s mills inadvertently triggered powerful new social forces that rippled across the country.  Free and open to the public, bring a friend.
