Pioneer Christmas takes Langley kids back in time

The annual event at the Centennial Museum is focused on old-timey seasonal activities.

The annual Pioneer Christmas event at the Langley Centennial Museum celebrated the delights of holidays past on Saturday.

The Langley Centennial Museum hosts artifacts and exhibits that focus on Langley’s early days, from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. For the annual Pioneer Christmas, modern kids can also try out old-style wooden toys, make their own wrapping paper with stamps, and create decorations.

There was also cookie decorating, photos with Santa, crafts, and visits to a traditional penny candy store.
