Christmas in the 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 homes & hosting feasts. Join Velya and Ehris, the Goodwife Duo, for apple peel throwing, apple seed prophecies and a DIY Apple Cinnamon Sugar Scrub.  You will need the following materials for this activity:

•      coconut oil

•      white sugar

•      1 medium apple

•      cinnamon powder

•      vanilla extract

•      glass jar (holds at least 16 ounces)

 

Registration with a valid email is required.
