In the light of candles and torches you will learn how Christmas was prepared and celebrated by poor crofters in the 1780s compared to rich farmers in the 1880s. During the tour you will aslo hear about the importance of a Christmas cross in the window, the reason why some Christmas preparations took place in the stable and what Christmas gifts really meant.
