In those days of the early 1900s, which now seem so very long ago, “the Christmas tree” party ushered in the annual Yuletide season.

Not even the Fourth of July or Thanksgiving celebrations, the other two major holiday periods in those days, could compare with Christmastime.

About Past Times

History fascinates us. We love to linger over old photographs or accounts of years long gone. Discovering our own personal histories can become an enjoyable pastime. This blog will provide some looks into that past. We'll look at NC history in general, and Triangle history in particular. We'll also try to give you the tips and tools (and connections) for looking at your own history.
