7 days: Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village

For three years now Jon and I have have enjoyed this event with our friends Dave and Sarah; they leave their daughter with her grandparents, as we leave Calvin with his, then we enjoy a dinner of adult-only company before we bundle up and spend several hours wandering the streets of Christmas past, enjoying caroling, mumming, roasted chestnuts, and wassail, ending in a fireworks display over the old time village. We love it, even the cold, and it wouldn't be Christmas any more without this night.
