Delight in the sounds, scents, and scenes of the holidays at the Mercer’s traditional Holiday Open House.  The festivities kick-off with a musical parade escorting St. Nick to the museum’s Log House.  In the Log House, Santa spends the evening listening to children’s wishes and gifting keepsake ornaments.  Sip hot cider, sing along with carolers, listen to musical performances, wish your troubles away with the “burning of the greens,” and enjoy the exhibit, Under the Tree: A Century of Holiday Trees and Toys.  Across the street are more holiday festivities at the James A Michener Art Museum.
