The elegant Mary Lily Kenan Flagler, wife of empire builder Henry Morrison Flagler, invites you to a lighthearted Christmas performance packed with historical facts. Mary Lily sparkles in the midst of her sumptuous Christmas decor as she recounts the fascinating origins of our beloved Christmas decorations, traditions and celebrations taking us on a Christmas adventure throughout time from the first Winter Solstice celebrations, to the wild frolics of Medieval 12th Night feasts, and finally to the Florida’s glittering Victorian Christmas Celebrations at Henry Flagler’s Grand Hotels.

Why were mincemeat pies once declared illegal? Why hang a pickle ornament in your tree? Mary Lily Flagler answers these mysterious yuletide questions and many more!

This is a special Christmas gift just for you!
