Tames shows how the holiday was celebrated by an upper-middle-class family on the east coast, a homesteading town in the Midwest, and those who tried to keep their traditions alive out on the prairie.

Discussed are the significance of presents, crèches, nutcrackers, and what was used to decorate the trees. Tames also talks about the perils of holiday travel and how food played a major part in the celebrations. When people gathered to celebrate the holiday, there would be music, dancing, and the singing of carols. During this program, the audience will learn the history of and be encouraged to sing some traditional carols that were popular in this era.
