Christmas Through the Ages at Red Doe Plantation


Are you going to be in South Carolina between December 2 and 4? I will be volunteering at this Christmas event for the entire weekend at Red Doe Plantation. We are putting on this event to educate the public about the evolution of Christmas in America, and raise money to help rescue and restore this historical landmark from deterioration beyond salvation. We have a lot of fun things planned that you’ll see on the schedule below and it’s an excellent opportunity to do some good for this holiday season. Are you a reenactor? We are looking for volunteers who reenact the colonial period, the antebellum period, pre-World War I, and post-World War II. There is information below if you are interested in volunteering. I will be at Red Doe all weekend volunteering and portraying Fanny Chamberlain. I will update this blog if any attractions are added or any changes are made, so check back often!
