Christmas 1910 – In-Museum Program

Vintage looking cartoon scene, shoppers in winter finery in front of a brightly lit shop front, with a Christmas tree, wreath, and other decorations lightly blurred by the windows. A man and a woman walk beside each other, holding brightly wrapped parcels. Two women greet each other, clasping each other's hands. All of hte women are in big dress-coats and wear hats. A young boy carrying a big parcel out of the shop. He has rosy cheeks, bright red clothes, bright green mittens, and a big smile.

Students will learn about 1910 settler Christmas traditions through in-classroom activities and an in-Museum imaginary shopping trip and tour of a special Christmas exhibit at WDM Saskatoon.
