‘Twas the Night Before Christmas at Coffman House!
The twinkle of candles, the aroma of hot cider and the sounds of the season will put you in the holiday spirit. Tour the 1860s-era home festively decorated by the Muirfield Village Garden Club. Decorations will reflect the beloved poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. Enjoy musical entertainment, hot cider and cookies. Visit the barn and capture a memory with a photo by the gaily decorated sleigh or by the large picturesque wreath. Visit the schoolroom, participate in a craft activity or listen to a reading of A Visit from St. Nicholas. If you’re lucky you may even see St. Nick, Mrs. Claus or even hear the clatter of tiny reindeer’s feet.
