Families came to Oatland Island Wildlife Center to enjoy the holidays while learning about Christmas traditions from the 1920s.

The ‘Days of Christmas Past’ was put together to teach kids about how Christmas was celebrated years ago. Some of the activities included making cards with a wax seal, visiting with Santa Claus and learning how to spin and weave. In one cabin, Sara Sawyer explained how some Christmas traditions are different today than they were decades ago.
