Christmas Tree and Sister Mamie Curtis, Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, 1916

Contributed by United Society of Shakers

From the December 25th, 1916, entry of the Sabbathday Lake Church Journal: "We were gladdened this morning by the children singing Christmas carols all around the family before breakfast. Tonight we have a beautiful Christmas Tree.

"All day was one round of joyousness and every heart here was made glad and happy. Before the gifts were distributed the young people gave us another very lovely Entertainment, Marches, Pantomines, and recitations and songs."

Note that photographs and paintings are being given as Christmas presents.

The photo was taken in the Meeting Room of the Dwelling House, Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village.
