Christmas Past – through January 6th

The exterior of the Geffrye at Christmas Past photographed by Marc Schlossmann

From the Geffrye:Each year, authentic festive decorations transform the museum’s period rooms, giving visitors an evocative and captivating insight into how Christmas has been celebrated in English middle-class homes over the past 400 years. Step back through the centuries and discover the origins and meanings of some of the rich and vibrant traditions of Christmas past, from feasting, dancing and kissing under the mistletoe to playing parlour games, hanging up stockings, sending cards, decorating the tree and throwing cocktail parties.    Throughout the exhibition, festive food will be served in the restaurant and visitors can hunt for Christmas gifts, decorations, cards and books in the shop.”
