Wiregrass Christmas Celebration 2012

What a wonderful day you missed if you were not at the Agrirama yesterday!  The weather was lovely, the people attending were too!  Those of us who stayed all day and demonstrated had a great time, at least I sure did!

Agrirama Wiregrass Christmas at the Museum

You can see a LOT of photos at their site, of this and previous events out there.  At this point there are none of myself or of Wendy, maybe later? 

This is one that Wendy snapped with her cell phone -
Being at the Agrirma and having her snap a photo with her cell phone, is rather ironic. At the time the village is set in, even a telephone in the house was rare and they sure couldn't take photos!

The hallway we sat in to crochet is the "dog trot".  It is a hallway that is open on each end, to allow air to travel through to cool the house in summer.  With gates on the room doors, you could open the door to the dog trot to allow the hot air to escape, while keeping the dogs out. 

There were a group of musicians on the front porch, playing a variety of songs, Christmas, childrens, country, all sorts of songs.  And a lady whose voice is truly incredable sang along with them.

Another lady, Ms Cody, was in the kitchen cooking biscuits & sausage gravy on a wood stove.  Talk about delicious!  Yum!  You could have your biscuit with gravy or with site made cane syrup. Right beside the house was the cane press and syrup making shed.  You could also get a small cup of fresh cane juice to drink.  Oh how I loved snitching cane juice to drink when I was a child.  My grandfather's press was just like the one they have at the Agrirama, and lots of neighbors brought their cane over for grinding in it.

If you ever want to see the late 1800 early 1900 times in action, come visit the Agrirama.
