Agassiz-Harrison Museum, Observer team up for the holidays

Three-part mini series will lead up to Christmas Eve edition

The holiday season is rich with memories, festivities and time-honoured traditions.

In honour of the holiday season, The Observer is collaborating with the Agassiz-Harrison Museum to produce a three-part weekly mini-series exploring the history of holiday and winter traditions and stories from across Agassiz-Harrison.

Next week, we will take a stroll down memory lane, sampling articles and advertisements from years gone by through a visit to the museum’s extensive archives. The following week, we will explore the winter traditions of the area First Nations people. Finally, in our Christmas Eve edition, we will look back on traditions from the Victorian era and the pioneer days, when the District of Kent was first established.

Stay connected to The Observer for holiday photos, stories and much more.
