Christmas 1910 – In-Museum Program

An old fashioned colour cartoon Christmas card featuring a bustling storefront. The windows are bright with yellow light and decorations like a Christmas tree, wreath, and bobbles. Outside, two women in colourful winter garments greet each other, a young boy carries a wrapped parcel, and other shoppers move about carrying parcels and decorations.

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.
