Using archival materials for inspiration, Blithewold’s decorators volunteer their time and talents to develop a new theme each Christmas that explores the interests of the Van Wickle family during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This year, our theme is called “A Family Gathering”. Diary entries give us a glimpse into the family’s Christmas and New Year traditions allowing us to recreate the Christmas weekend at Blithewold in 1910.
Blithewold is open for Christmas from November 23 through January 1 (closed December 24 and 25). The Mansion is open Tuesday through Sunday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Thursdays and Fridays 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. Closed Mondays.
