Ever wondered what it might have been like to celebrate the holidays in one of Newburyport’s grand old homes? Discover the sights, sounds and smells of Old Christmas at the Cushing House, headquarters of the Museum of Old Newbury. A Victorian Christmas and Home for the Holidays are two of the featured themes this year. Built in 1808 as a shipmaster’s home, Cushing family members made their home here for 137 years. At 11 a.m. Dec. 3, there will be a special reading of holiday stories in Miss Margaret Cushing’s parlor. Join by the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree and listen to favorite stories of old New England. After the story, children can enjoy seasonal treats and a chance to color a holiday scene. Please call to reserve a spot at 978-462-2681.
