Celebrate the holiday season and learn what the holidays were like on the Texas frontier in the 19th century with "A Homemade Christmas" at the Alamo on Saturday, December 5. 
It can be hard to imagine a time when the Alamo wasn't decorated for the holidays with a beautiful Christmas Tree in Alamo Plaza, and when there wasn't always a metropolitan city surrounding the Shrine of Texas Liberty. At "A Homemade Christmas," visitors will learn what life was like during the holidays in 19th century Texas. The Alamo's Living Historians will demonstrate holiday crafts, hobbies, storytelling, and activities that Texans enjoyed during the holidays in the 1800s.  

For the Texas history enthusiast in your life, you can now buy the Official Alamo 2020 Christmas Ornament or our Christmas Crockett Kits, which include Davy Crockett themed activities for ages 9-13. A portion of all Alamo Gift Shop proceeds go toward preserving the Alamo for future generations. 
There is no charge to attend "A Homemade Christmas" which is an in-person event, though donations are kindly accepted.
