This first time production of what is sometimes known in Appalachia as "Breaking Up Christmas" will be held at the Museum Center at 5ive Points. It will include music, stories, and other fun "happenings" that would have occurred as the people of the mountains traveled from house to house celebrating Christmas right up to Epiphany, the time when the Christmas season ends.
