Beginning December 11, families visiting this outstanding repository of living American history can share the kind of Christmas their ancestors knew. The warmth and nostalgia of earlier Yuletides abounds in the Village homes appropriately decorated as they might have been by their original famous owners — men like Webster, Edison, Burbank, Ford and the Wright Brothers. These early American buildings, aglow with candles, greenery, festive tables, poinsettia and yule logs, re-create the theme, "A Currier & Ives Christmas."

The Village is alive with activity. Bread bakes in the hearth of a pioneer cabin, taffy bubbles on the stove of a 19th-century farm kitchen and hammers shape red-hot iron on the anvil in America's oldest operating forge. Adding to the atmosphere, the sound of traditional Christmas music occasionally drifts through the bare trees to mingle with the tinkle of harness bells on the horses pulling old- fashioned sleighs along the snow-crusted streets. Music also fills the Museum where craftsmen are busy recreating that time when not only the luxuries, but also the necessities of life were made by hand. These skilled artisans mold candles, blow glass Christmas ornaments, cast metals, form pottery and make dolls, quilts, hooked rugs and many other • objects in the "[I" :.• . .. ...«. ,-..- «'..i-:,v •).
