Horne Creek Living Historical Farm, located in Pinnacle, will recreate the warmth of a 1900s era Christmas, as the Hauser family and their neighbors would have experienced it, Tuesday, Dec. 1, Thursday, Dec. 3, and Friday, Dec. 4. The farmhouse, lit by the warm glow of light from the home’s oil lamps and fireplaces, will be simply decorated and showcase a variety of holiday activities. These include: caroling in the parlor accompanied by organ music, readings of period Christmas stories and information on Christmas customs and — new to this year’s festivities — a make-and-take craft. A hearty country meal will conclude the evening.
