The Monmouth County Library System is bringing back one of their most popular programs which is all about Colonial and Victorian Christmas Customs.
Judith Krall-Russo will be discussing all of the holiday traditions on Friday, Nov. 30 at 2 p.m. at Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan Township.
Krall-Russo will talk about the similarities and differences between the customs of a Colonial Christmas and a Victorian Christmas. Some common Christmas rituals including caroling and making a gingerbread house have been passed on from earlier times. Christmas decorations such as holly and mistletoe are also common ornamentations from the past.
Krall-Russo is also a lover of foods and she will talk about the types of foods that were prepared during traditional Colonial and Victorian Christmas meals.
Monmouth County Library Headquarters is located at 125 Symmes Drive in Manalapan Township.
