On Sunday, Dec. 6, from 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., visitors will have an opportunity to meet and take photos with Victorian Santa, safely “social-distanced” on the open front porch of the historic Oswald J. Nitschke House and to visit the site’s outdoor Christkindlmarkt featuring the newly created Kenilworth Commemorative Coverlet, handcrafted wreaths and other gift items and holiday treats/baked goods. Those who wish to view the c. 1880 home authentically decorated for Christmas in late 19th-/early 20th-century style are welcome to do so in very small groups at a time in accordance with current coronavirus-related restrictions.
Admission to all activities is free. Masks are required, and temperatures will be taken upon entering the site.
Visitors are invited to bring letters to Santa and/or to bring, for the Nitschke House Cultural Heritage Tree, an ornament representing their heritage/culture, labeled as such with their family’s name.
Shown here is one of the many children who visited the Nitschke House Victorian Santa during a previous year’s celebration.
