Around the Fireplace…Holiday Traditions
December 18 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until January 8, 2023
From the first weekend of December until the end of the school holiday break, the Château Ramezay – Historic Site and Museum of Montreal will be adorned of rich decorations and offer a festive programming. Get the family together and reacquaint yourselves with the origins of old-fashioned holiday season traditions with: Around the Fireplace…Holiday Traditions!
The Château Ramezay’s fireplace mantels will be richly decorated with a specific theme. Each hearth will have you discover a holiday tradition: greeting cards, Christmas stockings, Advent calendar… there is much to learn around our fireplaces! Invite your cousins, don’t forget about grandma, and come reconnect with the traditions of the past through our exhibitions and activities. You’ll leave with rekindled anecdotes and beautiful memories to share with family and friends.
As part of this festive programming, the Château Ramezay is offering an opportunity for children, unique in Montreal: to come hang a Christmas stocking by one of our fireplaces! Then, come back in the New Year to retrieve it. Who knows what Santa will have left for you?
• The stockings will be available for $10 plus tax;
• They can be hung from December 3rd to 30th, 2022;
• They can be then picked up as of January 2nd, 2023.
To help guide through the Museum, a free booklet will be offered to families upon their arrival. A hunt for curiosities from the past, a quest for information tidbits, and discussion prompts will keep children engaged throughout the visit.
