Interesting Events – Twelfth Night, Jazzy Birthdays, Baby Yoda & More
Did you open your Google Calendar to see that January 2020 page in all it’s glory and found it … *GASP* … empty?!?! Never fear, we are here to help! We’ve made it our New Year’s Resolution to help Charlotteans keep their calendars full so they can get out and explore this wonderful city. Start your year off with music, dancing, acting, a bit of history and a whole lot of fun:
Twelfth Night: The Vanishing Holiday
Jan. 4 at 11:00am and 1:30pm
President James K. Polk State Historic Site
The Thanksgiving leftovers are (hopefully) all gone. The Christmas presents have been opened and returned for the correct sizes. The New Year’s Eve ball has dropped and we’ve rung in the new decade. The holidays are all over for now… or so you thought. What if we told you there was a holiday that was once widely celebrated and has all but vanished being celebrated this weekend?
This Saturday, January 4, head to the President James K. Polk State Historic Site in Pineville to celebrate Twelfth Night, a holiday so obscure that even social media managers can’t figure out how to make it work with their brands. Join historian Ron Vinson as he walks you through the holiday’s medieval origins, Shakespeare’s play of the same name and it’s connections to the Colonial Carolinas all while enjoying traditional tunes and desserts.
The event is free but you will need to register. Click here for registration and more information.
