Join staff and volunteers at San Felipe de Austin State Historic Site for Texas history and holiday crafts to celebrate the Christmas season!

Christmas was much different for settlers in Mexican Texas than what most of us experience in our modern lives. The day’s activities will be aimed at history lovers and families alike. They include informational presentations on religion and reflections on the Christmas season in Mexican Texas, readings of “Legend of the Poinsettia” and poinsettia papercraft activities for kids, and refreshments at the outdoor oven in the Villa de Austin exhibit prepared over an old-fashion hearth.

This event runs from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, December 16th. The story starts here, at San Felipe de Austin!
