A Merry Look at Yuletide Fare with Carolyn Blackstock
Join Carolyn Blackstock (Waterloo Region Museum) for a fun seasonal exploration of the Foods of Christmas Stories and Songs. Bring your voice or musical instrument for an edible sing-a-long and a snack for some appetizing story telling as we journey through the centuries of Christmas celebrations. She'll even teach you how to make an easy no bake treat to enjoy through the Christmas season.

The Season’s Greetings with Tom Reitz
Break open the eggnog and rum. Pour yourself a mug of mulled wine. Or toast some marshmallows for on top of your hot chocolate! ALHFAM member Tom Reitz will share images from his collection of photographic postcards, showing Christmas celebrations in people’s homes, churches and schools decorated for the holidays in the early 1900s. (And as requested at our virtual get together in September, Tom will ensure that there will be plenty of fun images, but he says that you’re on your own for cookies and fruitcake!)
