The Vanishing Holiday: Twelfth Night

When: Sat., Jan. 7, 11 a.m. 2017
Price: Free admission
Ron Vinson, Executive Director of the Presbyterian Heritage Center in Montreat, NC, will discuss the origin and prominence of Twelfth Night from its medieval continental origins through Shakespeare’s 1602 play, to observances in Colonial Carolinas. Once the annual peak of parties, gift-giving and weddings, Twelfth Night was gradually absorbed and squeezed out during the 19th century. This presentation will also include illustrations, and an opportunity to hear medieval carols and colonial tunes about the celebration of Twelfth Night.
