From time to time, we feature information here at 1812Blockhouse about interesting events and happenings within an easy drive of Richland County. We call this series “In Our Backyard.”
By sure to check out Christmas in North Central Ohio for links to seasonal events taking place in Richland, Ashland, and Crawford Counties.
This week you can step into the world of Charles Dickens as Ohio Village in Columbus revisits the Victorian Christmas made famous in his stories in “A Dickens of a Christmas.”
From plum pudding and humbug pie to “that pretty little German toy”, the Christmas Tree, Dickens created a festive and enduring vision of Christmas.
Join us in the village as the spirit of Dickens comes to life through interactions with characters from his writings, cooking demonstrations, hands-on crafts, decorations, caroling, readings by candlelight, street vendors, and many more Victorian holiday traditions. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
Visitors can meet and interact with Ohio Village residents to learn how they celebrate the holiday season, interact with Scrooge, Jacob Markey, and other characters from Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” and enjoy music and dance of the period while partaking in various activities in the Village buildings.
