Inside the Parsonage, for example, guests learn about the three-candle Yule log and about how the tradition of hanging stockings by the chimney evolved from the Dutch tradition of leaving shoes by the fireplace for St. Nicholas to fill. My friend, Jessica, and I visited Old Sturbridge Village during an evening "Christmas Traditions by Candlelight" program in December of 2004. Join us on this photo tour as we explore Old Sturbridge Village decorated for the holiday season. We'll learn about other early Christmas customs and maybe even run into Father Christmas.
