From Christmas cards to decorated trees and Christmas crackers, many of the best-known Christmas traditions are products of the Victorian era. The East Hampton Historical Society invites the community to discover the origins of many of today’s holiday customs, brought to life in two events at the Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran Studio on Main Street in East Hampton Village — “Victorian Christmas” and “Aglow: A Holiday Experience.”

Victorian Christmas at Moran Studio is offered Wednesdays through Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., through December 23. Tickets are $5, and preregistration is preferred.

“Aglow: A Holiday Experience” will be offered for one night only, on Saturday, December 11, from 5 to 7 p.m., when the Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran Studio will be transformed into a Victorian holiday celebration. Tour the historic home decorated for a festive Victorian Christmas. Visit with Santa Claus, enjoy live Christmas music, and a make a small children’s craft. Admission is $10 and preregistration is required. No drop-ins permitted.

“Meet Old Saint Nick, who will be making a ‘guest appearance’ at the Moran Studio. We hope that you will bring your Christmas list, take a photo with him, and enjoy the beauty and splendor which is the Moran Studio decorated for the holidays,” said Marianne Della Croce, director of visitor experience.

“The Victorians transformed the idea of Christmas so that it became centered around the family,” said Steve Long, executive director of the East Hampton Historical Society. “From our family to yours, please join us for our holiday happenings at the historic Moran Studio.”

Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran Studio is at 229 Main Street, East Hampton Village. To purchase tickets, visit at
