Discover the meaning of Boxing Day in the 18th century holiday tradition. Consider the differences between the way the Potts family entertained for the season and the work the household staff underwent to throw a party. Listen to hear if your ears can recognize holiday tunes that are still sung by modern carolers or test your luck and play a colonial parlor game. Uncover the links of winter traditions both old and new at Pottsgrove Manor.

 

Twelfth Night Tours are given during normal museum hours, Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm and Sunday from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
