About

For 6-13 year olds

Christmas is the biggest celebration of the year in some parts of the world – including Gloucestershire - and is a time for special food and the giving of presents. Traditionally it is a time for families and friends to get together – something which many people were not able to do last year.

In this session we are going to look at some of the Christmas traditions which we have records of here in the Archives. We're also going to get crafty, including making a special Christmas garland and a traditional Christmas card for someone special. This is going to be our last session of the year, so to make it extra special please wear something festive and bring a little treat you can eat. We're hoping to find out about your Christmas traditions: is there something special you always do at this time of year?
