Christmas Tours at the Gables
Running from 10am-5pm up through December (excluding Christmas Day) at the House of Seven Gables.
Did you know that Christmas was banned in New England for nearly two centuries? This December, The House of the Seven Gables offers guests a special tour blending the unique history of the mansion with the little known history of Christmas in colonial Massachusetts. Explore the maritime, architectural and literary history of the house and discover Christmas’ transformation from a rowdy seasonal celebration to the peaceful family-centered traditions we recognize today. This special tour is offered during regular hours in December except during the production of A Classic Christmas
Flags of the Day
This Day in History
On December 15, 1993, Schindler’s List, starring Liam Neeson in the true story of a German businessman who saves the lives of more than a thousand Polish Jews during the Holocaust, opens in theaters. The film was nominated for 12 Academy Awards and took home seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director. It was the first Best Director win for Spielberg, who had been nominated in the category for three of his earlier films.
I hope to see you here!
