This year, for the Hiwan Homesteads Christmas Tea, Steinle will be channeling Dickens to discuss English traditions and how they changed with Prince Alberts introduction of the Christmas tree. And speaking of the Tannenbaum, thats the decoration theme this year at the museum: In each room, youll find a different Christmas tree, decked out in antique style. The Christmas Tea, which begins today at 11:30 a.m., also includes a light lunch and a tour of the museum. Admission is $15 for the general public and $12 for Jefferson County Historical Society members; groups of four or more can also claim $12 tickets. Advance registration is required; sign up by calling 720-497-7650.
