Due to a family emergency, the presenter for “The Man Who Reinvented Christmas” program will no longer be able to give her presentation.
We are sorry for this inconvenience and hope to offer this presentation in the future.
Would you believe that Christmas used to be a very low-key affair in America and Britain? It’s true! Until the mid-19th Century, people did little to mark the event, businesses didn’t consider it a holiday, and yet by 1900, it had become our largest and most popular annual celebration. Why? What changed society’s view of Christmas? The answer may be Charles Dickens and A Christmas Carol. Historian Kathy Wilson investigates how a novel about social reform resulted in the transformation of Christmas from a date on the church calendar into the holiday we know today. This event is sponsored by the Waukee Public Library Friends Foundation.
