Christmas with the Whitehornes
Presented by Newport Restoration Foundation
December 4 - December 19, 2010
Glimpse the simple Christmas festivities of the early 1800s in a Federal-style Newport home. Meet the two Whitehorne daughters who are preparing for a Christmas meal. Learn about the history of the holiday and why some less tolerant colonies had even outlawed holiday celebrations. Enjoy a taste of a period dessert straight from one of Mrs. Whitehorne’s recipes and take away a booklet with several period recipes.
