Paul Revere House Holiday Events

Thanksgiving Traditions and Christmas Controversies
Saturday, Dec. 5, and Sunday, Dec. 6, 2009
9:30 AM – 4:15 PM

Did early Bostonians celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas? Would Paul Revere put up holiday decorations, or exchange gifts with his many children? How did people in colonial Boston mark the darkest season of the year? Come to the Paul Revere House, home of Boston’s favorite patriot, to find out. We invite you to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, smells, even tastes of the holidays in colonial Boston!

Costumed interpreters in the Revere House, c. 1680, and neighboring Pierce-Hichborn House, c. 1711, will acquaint visitors with colonial thanksgiving traditions and controversies surrounding the observance of Christmas. Both houses will feature period appropriate displays of tropical fruits, prized by the colonists for their bright colors as much as their sweet flavors. Discover why Boston banned any observance of Christmas at times during the 1600’s. Learn how by the Reveres’ era, even Puritans sometimes treated themselves to delectable thanksgiving feasts scheduled suspiciously close to December 25, and visited Anglican churches to enjoy the greenery and festive music.
