‘Twelfth Night’ Celebrates French Holiday Traditions

Take the family to Isle a la Cache Museum in Romeoville Saturday for a night of merriment.

Isle a la Cache Museum in nearby Romeoville will present “Twelfth Night: A French Holiday Tradition,” a free, all-age family program, at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Sponsored by the Forest Preserve District of Will County, Twelfth Night is a traditional French holiday that has been celebrated for hundreds of years. It’s the night when Christmas festivities end, and is observed as a time of merriment.

In the Illinois Country in the 1700s, French-Canadian fur traders celebrated the holiday with music, dance, stories, games and treats. In honor of those traditions, guests at the Twelfth Night program will have the opportunity to make a vintage French craft to take home as a keepsake of the event.

Registration is required for the program, which will be held indoors at the Isle a la Cache Museum at 501 East 135th St., just east of Route 53 in Romeoville.

For more information and to register for the program, call the museum at 815-886-1467.
