Midcentury Christmas at Renfrew Museum and Park

Midcentury Christmas at Renfrew Museum and Park

Tuesday November 23rd, 2021 * 7:00 PM
Presented by Dr. Leslie Goddard, Ph.D.
Kick off the holiday season with Renfrew as we remember back to the era of our last private residents, Edgar and Emma Nicodemus!
Christmas in America from the 1940s through the 1960s meant aluminum trees, department store Santas, and cartoon specials on TV.
Every kid in the suburbs had to have an Easy-Bake Oven, a G.I. Joe, or a Slinky.
The coolest houses had rotating color wheels for their trees.
Historian Leslie Goddard explores this optimistic era in a new illustrated lecture, using photographs, advertisements, greeting cards, and catalogs to explain why this era was such a turning point for how we celebrate the holidays.

Free Movie, Silver Bells

Free Movie, Silver Bells

When an ambitious businessman gets in a scuffle with a ref at his son’s basketball game, he is suspended from his job and sentenced to community service — manning a red kettle and ringing bells for the Salvation Army for the rest of the Christmas season. At first he finds this humiliating, and in his self-pity determines to be the world’s worst bell ringer, but as he encounters the people behind the kettle, his life — and especially his relationship with his son — is changed by something as simple as ringing a bell.
