Christmas Open House at the Sod House Museum will be held Saturday, December 18, from 2 to 4 p.m.  Come and see the vintage Santas and enjoy the Christmas carols they will be singing.  Friends of the Sod House will be serving cookies and hot cider.

 

The Santa Clause of twentieth-century America is the legacy of Christian tradition, ancient and modern social customs, centuries-old legends, historical facts, and the conception of a long line of writers and artists on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. 

 

 

The Oklahoma Historical Society developed this holiday program that depicts many of the historic Santas, who tell their own part of the Santa Clause story.  They dress authentically in their time period and country of origin.

This year the Santas also will be singing Christmas carols for visitors to the Sod House Museum.  Come join the celebration and visit Grandfather Frost, Babushka, Black Peter, Weihnachtsmann, La Befana, Saint Nicholas, and other Santas.

 

The Sod House Museum is located north of Cleo Springs on State Highway 8.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For more information, contact 580/463-2441 or sodhouse@okhistory.org.
