This year’s holiday tour at Clayton will trace the evolution of the most popular Christmas pastimes, most of which developed over the course of the 19th century, including decorating with greenery, adorning trees, sending holiday cards, giving gifts, and enjoying tales of Santa Claus. Period photographs, copies of holiday shopping lists in Adelaide Frick’s handwriting, and receipts for toys purchased for the Frick children will enrich the tour with authentic information about holidays at Clayton.
