A Colonial Christmas Contest!

Spending time with family and friends? Gift exchanges? Volunteering in the community? The holidays mean something different to everyone, and the way each person celebrates can vary. As the holidays approach, The Jacobus Vanderveer House wants to hear about your traditions, homecoming stories, and the places and people that make this season special to you. Get creative and share your thoughts on the meaning of the holidays through a poster (22 x 28 inches), poem or essay (1,000 words or less).
