The Spirit of Yuletide


Christmas was always a special time for the du Ponts at Winterthur. From 1839, when the house was built, to 1951, when the family opened their home as a museum, succeeding generations have celebrated with special traditions.

In the years since Winterthur opened as a museum, the du Pont tradition of sharing the holiday with a wide circle of family and friends has been an impetus for the presentation of Yuletide at Winterthur, when visitors see some of the most elegant rooms of the house decked out in holiday finery. Some of the displays recall the customs of the du Pont family when they lived here, but others take their inspiration from Winterthur's collection of American antiques to interpret holiday customs of the 1700s and 1800s, And for those who just want to see beautiful decorations, magnificent Christmas trees recalling the beauty of the Winterthur Garden can be seen throughout the tour. In short, there is something to please every visitor, and many return year after year to enjoy the cherished ritual that is Yuletide at Winterthur.
