MISCOUCHE, P.E.I. – A family Christmas celebration will be held at the Acadian Museum of Prince Edward Island, in Miscouche, on Sunday from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

During the afternoon, there will be an ornament-making workshop for children and Christmas music featuring the École-sur-Mer choir and Les Éloizes, a group of young performers from the Evangeline School.

Visitors to the museum will have the opportunity to see a display of nativity scenes from Alméda Thibodeau’s collection, and Georges Arsenault will give an illustrated presentation on the history of the Christmas tree.

The festivity will come to a close with a lunch and a singsong of French Christmas carols, accompanied on the piano by Edmond Gallant.

The organizers hope Santa will be able to make a short visit at the museum during the afternoon.

Admission is free to attend, but donations are appreciated.

The Dec. 17 activity is organized by the Sister Antoinette DesRoches Historical Committee and the Acadian Museum in conjunction with the Centre Belle-Alliance.
