BYU gallery offers "Christmas in Nauvoo" family home evening program Nov. 25, Dec. 2 and 9

Early registration is available and encouraged

The Education in Zion Gallery at Brigham Young University will host its “Christmas in Nauvoo” family home evenings on three Mondays, Nov. 25, Dec. 2 and 9, at the base of the spiral stairs in the Joseph F. Smith Building.  

The family home evening programs will run at 7 and 8 p.m. each night. Gallery educators will be in character as Eliza Snow and Wilford Woodruff and will share Christmas-related stories from historic Nauvoo. The programs will also include Christmas carols along with hot chocolate and cookies.

“The unique element of this program is that we’re looking into how the early members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints spent Christmas and seeing how our traditions are similar and different from theirs,” said Eryn Lane, former 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.
