From The Page (November, 2004):

We welcome all to share in celebrating Christmas in New Spain at the end of the 16th century. Christmas celebrated with Old World traditions and the abundance of the New World. We are not recreating but celebrating the sense of community of these explorers, conquistadors, soldiers, Company colonists, servants and others. There will be games, contests, dancing, possibly a tourney; entertainment, onsite activities and fun for all. Our feast will be traditional with a New World flavour. There will be a Table Decorating (Spanish or Christmas) contest. Eskalyan A&S will be Leather working. Documentation not needed, but extra points given. Other competitions to be announced.
