Step back in time and enjoy a traditional late Victorian Christmas dinner in downtown Orange, Virginia! Come to the Holladay House this December and enjoy a Dickensian Christmas with an American twist!

Guests attending the Holladay House’s Gilded Age Christmas Dinners will enjoy:

Introduction to the Holladay House and Gilded Age* Christmas traditions

A four-course meal catered by Provisions Market Table of Orange consisting of:

           – Sweet potato croquette & whole cranberry relish

           – Creamy turtle soup

           – Thyme-roasted duck with carrots, wild rice, herbed duck sauce

           – Christmas pudding

Choice of Chateau MerrillAnne wines or sparkling apple juice

Period-appropriate parlor games

Dress: Semi-formal

Seating is limited to eight guests per dinner.

The Gilded Age was not “gilded” for everyone, nor is Christmas a time of bounty for all our neighbors today. A portion of the proceeds from these dinners will go to the Orange County Children’s Toybox, a local nonprofit that has been giving gifts to good girls and boys since 1991.

* The term “Gilded Age” (1870-1900) was coined by Mark Twain as a criticism of conspicuous consumption by American nouveaux riches.
