Christmas in the Colonies

Christmas in the Colonies is a virtual talk presented by Velya Janez-Urban and Ehris Urban: The Grounded Goodwife.

Join Velya and Ehris as they share these seasonal activities:

  • a DIY Apple Cinnamon Sugar Scrub
  • apple peel throwing (to determine your spouse)
  • apple seed prophecies
  • a group wassail carol

Christmas in the New England colonies was, for the most part, just another day.  Puritans and Protestants detested the entire celebration, and likened it to "pagan rituals". But some colonists enjoyed an array of festivities such as singing carols, decorating their homes, and hosting feasts. 

To make the apple cinnamon sugar scrub you will need: coconut oil, white sugar, 1 medium apple, cinnamon powder, vanilla extract, and a glass jar (holds at least 16 ounces). 

This event is held on Zoom; registration with a valid email address is required.
