Where in the world have many of our holiday traditions come from? Join us for the next Backyard Rangers program at Fort Stanwix National Monument and find out! Explore seven different stations in the Willett Center and discover how people in the 1700s celebrated winter holidays. Learn about how our unique American culture began. Discover why we see candles in the windows at this time of year, the origin of singing carols, what celebration the Oneida families in the area looked forward to in the cold winter months, and much more.
