Colonial Christmas at Historic Camden

It's unlikely that today's kids will be asking Santa for a "bird on Bellows, Prussian Dragoon, Tunbridge Tea Sett, or neatly dress'd Wax Baby." That's what Jackie and Patsey Custis received as Christmas gifts from their new stepfather, George Washington, in 1759. Not from under the Christmas tree, mind you. Christmas trees and Santa Claus weren't introduced until the 19th century!

Step up security measures during upcoming holidays

It seems that during the Christmas and Thanksgiving season property crimes increase. Maybe it's because thieves realize that people are shopping for Christmas gifts that will be kept in homes. We have also seen a recent rise in housebreakings, mostly in the rural areas. As is often the case, thieves steal guns, TVs, stereos, computers, tools, etc.
