Celebrate the Christmas season at The British Emporium on Saturday, December 2 from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. at a traditional Christmas Open House. Father Christmas, the personification of Christmas in Britain, will be on hand until 3 p.m. to greet the children. This event is free and open to the public. A Very British Christmas includes a sampling of mince pies, Christmas cakes and festive food and drink – all of which will be available during the open house. Christmas Crackers are a Victorian British tradition where each of the guests at the Christmas meal receives a cracker. When they pull open the cracker, they receive a party hat, a joke and a surprise gift inside. Discover an enchanting assortment of Christmas crackers and your British Christmas favourites. So, come for the fun, food and festivities, and shop for everything you need to have a Very British Christmas of your own at your home!
