As part of the program it is hoped to discover many of the stories behind our old timey and often forgotten traditions. Please plan to come share, hear and learn about the region’s Christmas traditions.


The PCHA program will take place inside the history museum at 60 Walker Street in downtown Columbus. The public is invited to attend and as always, the program is free of charge.
