Gallery educators will be in character as Eliza Snow and Wilford Woodruff sharing Christmas-related stories from historic Nauvoo. The evening will also include Christmas carols along with hot chocolate and cookies.
“We’re looking into how the early Saints spent Christmas and seeing how our traditions are similar and different from theirs,” said Eryn Lane, gallery educator at the Education in Zion Gallery. “We also get to see just how great a community Nauvoo was for the Saints, especially during the holidays.”
The Christmas in Nauvoo Family Home Evening is the most popular family home evening program that Education in Zion offers. More than 200 people attended the Christmas in Nauvoo family home evening programs last year. Groups with tour reservations will have priority over those who simply show up to the gallery.
For more information or to make a reservation, call the gallery at (801) 422-6519, or visit educationinzion.byu.edu.
