Beauvoir: The Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library will launch a new holiday tradition this year, Christmas at Beavuoir, which includes the lighting of 100 Live oaks on the beachfront property; weekly carolling by civic and church groups, and local musicians; visits by Father Klaus; and arts and crafts and food vendors. The affair kicks off Nov. 8 with a fund-raising festival of trees and continues Nov. 9 through Jan. 6, each Thursday through Sunday. Here are photos that show the behind-the-scenes gathering leading up to Nov. 8. Photos by Vincent Creel, unless otherwise noted. Click on individual images to enlarge.
