Christmas Comes to Old New York
Merchant's House Museum 29 East Fourth Street, New York, NY 10003

Scenes of holiday preparation recreated throughout the House show how many of our modern holiday traditions originated in mid-19th century New York. From Christmas trees decorated with candles and handmade ornaments, to poinsettias, holly, and evergreen garlands decking the halls, holiday feasting, Christmas songs and carols, presents and stockings. And, of course, Santa Claus. Included with regular admission.Unless otherwise noted, reservations are strongly suggested for all events.
