|Romantic holidays in Savannah, GA|
at Catherine Ward House Inn
"The great fête of the people was Christmas.... Time was measured by it: it was either so long 'since Christmas,' or so long 'before Christmas', wrote Thomas Nelson Page (1853-1922) of Social Life in Old Virginia Before the War. "It was the time to 'Shout the glad tidings.' It was The Holidays."
Today the people of in the Hostess City of the South are are called Savannahians. The citizens now invite the world to visit for the holidays. There are no masquerading of costumes, no pigeon shoots, no baseballs matches, and no tournaments of "knights in flaming colors..., lance in hand". Then as now, however, there was "a great deal of shipping in the river".
Oh, the food!
