Join the Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes in partnership with the Geneva Historical Society for a virtual program by Walter Gable.

Have you ever wondered why Christmas is celebrated on December 25? Do you know the origins of several of our favorite Christmas carols? Or why Santa Claus is a rather obese man, and why he wears a big black belt on red outfit trimmed with white? Do you know the origin of Christmas cards? How did Christmas trees, candy canes, poinsettias, etc. become part of our Christmas celebrations? The answers to these questions will be covered in Walt's program.

Walter Gable is Seneca County Historian, a book author, a columnist for the Finger Lakes Times, and a popular speaker on dozens of local history topics.
