Creating Christmas: How a Centuries Old European Celebration Became Something Uniquely American. Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at 7 p.m. (ONLINE) Join historian Mickey DiCamillo as he explains how the holiday – once so rowdy it was banned by the Puritans in the 1600s – was tamed, domesticated, and transformed into something uniquely American.
