Come to the estate for the brand new candlelit character-guided tour and learn more about holiday traditions in 18th Century Virginia. You will see the Washingtons as they prepare for a festive celebration with friends and family, a favorite holiday activity at Mount Vernon. In the Mansion, Washy Custis has just arrived home from school and Martha Washington is admiring an impressive array of desserts in the New Room, including a reproduction of her Great Cake. Some of the hired and enslaved servants are busy inspecting bills in the study, discussing the family's culinary preferences in the kitchen, and moving furniture in the New Room and hanging greens over doorways. You can visit the Slave Quarters, the Blacksmith Shop and the Greenhouse where you will be able to participate in the 18th Century dancing. 'Alladin' the Christmas Camel will be on site.
