Natural Tunnel is also hosting "Old Christmas" on Saturday, January 10, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm located at the Blockhouse parking lot within Natural Tunnel State Park.

Description according Natural Tunnel, "Modern celebrations of the Christmas holiday were late in making their way to those living in the Appalachian Mountains. Many ancient observances from “the old country” were still practiced here in these mountains as late as World War I, and in some pockets probably later. For instance, have you and your friends gone out “serenading'”? Contrary to what you might think, it has very little to do with caroling. Maybe you’ve stayed awake on Christmas Eve to hear, no, not sleigh bells and reindeer hooves, but sheep and horses bowing to pray. Many of the first settlers in the Appalachian Mountains were of Scots-Irish and English descent. So many of their customs were practiced, combined, and adapted to their new surroundings. Join period dressed re-enactors, from the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Association, as they take you back over 200 years ago to the time of 1775."
