Description

Dutch Holiday Traditions: History and Hands-On Craft Workshop is happening on Thursday, December 15, 2022 at 07:00PM EST at Historical Society of Rockland County with tickets starting at $8.00

In this on-site program, HSRC Education Coordinator Jennifer Brooks traces the line between the traditions of early Dutch settlers in Rockland County and surrounding areas to the growth of our modern American Christmas traditions.

Step back in time with us and explore the history behind our holiday traditions. Where did they come from? Who is Saint Nicholas, and how did he become Santa Claus? Why is the December season known for gift-giving and charity? What’s with the tree and the chimney? And what does any of this have to do with religion?

We’ll cover this fascinating history and complete share recipes and complete a festive Dutch-inspired holiday crafts to bring Rockland’s heritage to your home for the holidays.
