Fine old Christmas!

This shows an early image of Santa Claus wearing a blue cloak

When Santa wore blue.

“Fine old Christmas, with the snowy hair and ruddy face, had done his duty that year in the noblest fashion, and had set off his rich gifts of warmth and colour with all the heightening contrast of frost and snow.”
George Eliot, Mill on the Floss.

Unfortunately today is more wet and cold. Warm wishes for the festive season from the team at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery.
We are now closed until January 2nd when we will be open 10.30am until 4.30pm.
