The 38th Annual Trees of Christmas begins the Friday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 24. It will continue through Dec. 30, at historic Merrehope and the F.W. Williams house in Meridian at 905 Martin Luther King Drive.
The Meridian Restorations Foundation is getting help this year from Meridian home-schoolers in conducting the tours. The theme is "The Stories of Christmas".
"And there's nothing better than remembering cuddling up in someone's lap and having them read the story to you of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' or "The Christmas Star' or 'The Nutcracker' or telling you how the Christmas tree came to be or how Santa Claus is celebrated in many other countries," said Betty Lou Jones of Meridian restorations Foundation.
All money from the tours of the Trees of Christmas will go to maintain Merrehope and the F.W. Williams house.
The Trees of Christmas tours are available starting Nov. 24 and continue through Dec. 30. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, Monday through Saturday, and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays, Dec. 3, 10, and 17.
The cost is $10 for adults; $9.00 for senior citizens, groups of 10 or more; $5.00 for students ages 12 and up; $4.00 for children ages 7-11;
$3.00 for children ages 3-6; free to children under two years of age.
