In 1621 William Bradford banned Christmas and yet.....Christmas persists. How did "traditional" New England holiday foods develop and evolve despite this interruption in Christmas observance? This Lunch and Learn will explore the transformation of 17th-century English holiday feasting into the Christmas foods of the colonies, and examine the cultural and social influences of the holiday plate.

You may bring a bagged lunch or snack to enjoy while you experience the lecture series. We have Patuxet Cafe, in the Visitor Center.
