I am in the midst of finishing up the 2009 living history year with three successive colonial Christmas programs. Last Saturday, my friend John Moseley and I joined a couple of others fine fellows in portraying a colonial militia company at Brunswick Town-Fort Anderson's holiday program. The visitor's center was very nicely decorated in the Colonial Williamsburg fashion, there was an artist demonstrating scherenschnitte (German papercutting art), wonderful refreshments were enjoyed, and the wonderfully talented Ken Bloom provided period musical entertainment. The weather was somewhat uncooperative, which stifled visitation, but we had a good time nonetheless. Photos will follow as soon as I can get my hands on some.
This Saturday, our merry little band will be at Historic Halifax for the third consecutive year for their annual Christmas program. We'll finish up the three week run at Tryon Palace on December 19. More to follow on these two programs in their wake.
