Enjoy old-fashioned Christmas spirit and experience fascinating customs

Friends of Indiana Dunes will present “Christmas in the Dunes” from 1:00
PM to 4:00 PM, Sunday December 7, at the Chellberg Farm and Bailly

Experience the sights, sounds, and smells of a traditional Swedish
Christmas at the Chellberg farmhouse! Volunteers clad in
brightly-colored Swedish clothing will explain and recreate the magical

hour from 1:00 to 3:30. As you tour the house, listen to and enjoy
ongoing Swedish tunes on traditional instruments including the fiddle
and button accordion.   Let your sense of smell guide you into the
kitchen, where volunteers will be cooking on the woodstove and a
smorgasbord of Swedish foods will be on display. Be sure to and tell
Santa Claus what you want for Christmas!

After making a short jaunt through the winter woods to the Bailly
Homestead, warm up with a cup of hot cider and travel back in time to
the fur trade era. Let your imagination be your guide as you learn the
