Christmas customs come from and more this afternoon.

Plainfield's Drake House Museum hosts a free program of "Christmas and Mid-Winter Stories" today at 2:00 PM.

History on the Hoof's David Emerson will entertain visitors with a lively romp through the origins of our holiday customs, the Victorian "invention" of Christmas as we know it, the popularity of the Christmas tree and more. You can learn more about History on the Hoof here.
