Dickens' A Christmas Carol at Waveland

Drama, Family/Child, Holiday

Relive Christmas of the past with scenes from the Dickens’ classic, “A Christmas Carol” at Waveland State Historic Site. Since this Christmas classic was written in 1843, it only seems fitting to celebrate Christmas of the past in a historic home that was built in the same time period. Follow from room–to-room as the drama plays out right in front of you. A magical Christmas experience! Santa will be in the barn an hour before the first scheduled performance. He will be reciting a story and provide parents with a photo moment.

Story Time with Mrs. Santa Claus at Waveland

Holiday, Children, For the Family

Mrs. Santa Claus is best known for Elf wrangling, cookie baking, and assisting with toy assembly. Since she first emerged in the mid-19th century, Mrs. Claus has been a secondary character living in the shadow of her famous, workaholic husband. But along the way there have been glimmers of who she is as an independent person. Mrs. Claus is taking time to visit Waveland to share holiday stories, milk, cookies, and fun. Children will also make a bag of reindeer food to take home for Rudolph’s Christmas Eve visit. This event is designed for children ages 12 and younger, and at least one accompanying adult. Saturday December 1st, 8th and 15th, at 10:30 am. Mrs. Claus will be available for pictures and will accept letters to pass on to Santa ! $15.00 per child and $5.00 per adult.
