Come step back in time and observe the Christmas traditions of the Roaring Twenties — the Christmas trees, lights, feasts, and elaborate decorations creating a magical atmosphere in Nellie's home. Then learn about the contrast of the ’30s and ’40s when rationing was introduced. See how the emphasis shifted and was placed more on family and friends and far less on things. You will also learn to make a traditional 1940s soup, play old-fashioned games, and finish off your visit with an old-time dance.
