Santa will again be part of the Historical Society Candlelight tradition just as he was last year.

A long-standing holiday tradition in town, tours of the Greenwich Historical Society’s Bush-Holley House are set to begin this year with costumed interpreters, period holiday decorations and “candle” lighting throughout.

Specially created tours for families and children will begin at the Vanderbilt Education Center and take roughly 45 minutes.

This year, in keeping with the topic of WWI, the theme of the Historical Society’s current exhibition Greenwich Faces the Great War, candlelight tours of Bush-Holley House will focus on how the Holley family celebrated the holidays during the war years, including the meals they might have prepared.

Visitors may also enjoy hot chocolate and seasonal treats, music, crafts and from 5 to 6 p.m. and a visit from Santa Claus Sunday, Dec. 14 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Admission is free and reservations are not required. Other holiday information at Greenwichhistory.org or call 203-869-6899, ext. 10
