Program Description

Event Details

Deck the halls and trim the trees in the Clemens family way!

While Sam Clemens may have joked about finding Christmas preparations a bit tiring, his daughter Clara fondly remembered the “royal preparations for Christmastide” each year in their Hartford home during the late 1800s.

The Mark Twain House & Museum will join us for this event to explore how every member of the Clemens household helped to get the home ready for Christmas, as well as the meals they ate, the stories they read, and the games they played.

Complimentary seasonal light refreshments served.


Registration required.
