“. . . how could any one individual buy, wrap up, and expedite so many presents for one single day in the year as my mother did? . . . The work began weeks before the holy day. Even so, there seemed always to be a rush at the end.”
For Sam and Livy Clemens, the best Christmases were the ones they celebrated at home in Hartford with their three daughters. Learn more about their Christmas traditions, including selecting (or making) the perfect gift and hanging the children’s stockings under the supervision of Apollinaris the cat.
This program is delivered live from inside the historic home itself, which is completely transformed for the holiday season. At the end of the presentation, you will be able to ask any questions you want about the home and family, and request our roving camera-person show you any part of the home that you want!
