Experience Christmas traditions from years past! Eidem Christmas at the Historic Eidem Farm in Brooklyn Park offers a fun look at how Christmas was celebrated by area families over 100 years ago. Facility Coordinator Eve Ericson says, “The first floor of the house will be open for viewing. We’ll have it decorated for Christmas, we’ll be cooking with just some samples of what we’ll be cooking, we’ll have activities out on the grounds, popcorn stringing, we’ll do pomanders, we’ll have roasting marshmallows. If there’s snow, like we always hope there is, we’ll have the kick sleds, snowman making contest, and snowshoe routes for people to try too.” And it’s funny how experiencing old family traditions can become a family tradition, as Ericson adds, “We have a lot of families that have come, they come with their kids, the kids grow up, they come back with the grandkids, and the kids, and it becomes a family tradition that they come every year. Whether you have kids or not, it’s a great event, people love learning about those old time traditions.” Eidem Christmas is a free event that takes place Saturday, December 4th from 1-4pm.
