Don't miss this beloved holiday pageant, a charming Victorian Christmas with all the trimmings and trappings. Costumed guides lead candlelit tours of the home, which is decorated in nineteenth-century splendor much as the Seward family would have known it. As visitors learn about Christmas traditions of the Sewards, actors portraying various members of the family emerge to share heart-warming holiday memories gleaned from their letters and diaries. The evening concludes with caroling around the family's 1872 Steinway piano.
