Holiday Décor at the Hammond-Harwood House 2023

Christmas was not a highly celebrated holiday in the Revolutionary and Post-Revolutionary period in the American Colonies due to its association with the pagan winter solstice. However, Twelfth Night was observed with food, decoration and games. In Christian tradition, the twelve days of Christmas begins with the nativity of Jesus and ends on the twelfth night, January 6. In modern context, the meaning of the song The Twelve Days of Christmas is taken in a more secular context. This season District II–Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland have created floral arrangements inspired by the Twelve Days of Christmas.

Decorating has been an annual tradition since 1953, and we invite you to enjoy Annapolis’ architectural jewel this holiday season.
