Westchester’s Holiday Image-Makers

December 12, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Although the American celebration of Christmas blends traditions rooted in ancient times and Euro-Asian lands, it wasn’t declared a federal holiday until 1870. The American holiday season as we now know it evolved during the 19th and early 20th century, mainly due to works of authors, artists, and songwriters, most of whom had distinct ties to Westchester County. Barbara Davis, WCHS Co-Director and New Rochelle’s City Historian traces the evolution of the traditions while introducing the Westchester holiday “image makers” and their impact on the holiday observances. A sampler of celebrations at Westchester’s historic sites will also be highlighted.
