Episode 11: Colonial Celebrations

This week, we talk about how people celebrated special events in colonial times. Holidays, weddings, special occasions- how were they like today, and how were they different?

Charlotte from Long Island joins us to ask questions, and Lindy Cummings from Tryon Palace in North Carolina is here to answer them!
