Van Cortlandt House will be decorated in holiday finery from early December through early January. 

Included with regular Museum admission, this annual display features a glimpse into 18th-century celebrations of some familiar and not-so-familiar winter holidays. Self-guided tours will highlight scenes of Saint Nicholas Day, New Year's Day, and Twelfth Night celebrations throughout the house. 

A special self-guided children's and family eye-spy tour will also be available.
