The Monmouth County Library System is bringing back one of their most popular programs which is all about Colonial and Victorian Christmas Customs.

From a historical perspective, and just to get all in the Christmas spirit, this looks like it might be fun. However, I will be working at 2pm on Friday dammit! haha
