Government House staff are finalizing preparations for Christmas in 1905, Amédée and Henriette may be away from the house but that doesn’t mean work can stop. Book a tour and hear how Government House is getting ready for the holiday season and hear how many Christmas traditions (such as Christmas trees, cards, crackers, etc.) originated.
