New for 2020, the first floor of Glencairn will be decorated for the holidays with poinsettias, wreaths, a Christmas tree with antique glass ornaments, and much more. The Great Hall and Upper Hall include works of art illustrating the Christmas story (medieval to modern). Children are invited to participate in the Nativity Seek-and-Find—and will be rewarded with a prize. Christmas decorations used by the Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn family when they lived at Glencairn will be on display, including a miniature diorama with Swedish tomtar (elves), a Steiff ride-on donkey, and a large three-part Nativity scene made for the Pitcairns and on display at Glencairn every year since 1939. Enjoy discovering the first floor of Glencairn on your own, or use our web-app platform for a narrated self-guided tour of works of art illustrating the story of Jesus’ birth; a link will be provided.
