'Old Christmas' in Historic Odessa
By Mellany Armstrong

Now that your turkey is digested, you can think about getting in the mood for Christmas.

The Historic Odessa Foundation presents 'A Story of Old Christmas' at the Wilson Warner House, built in 1769.

Executive director Deborah Buckson says the depiction of an old English Christmas features peacock pie.

"The pies were decorated and they actually would use a taxidermy head of the peacock as well as all of the peacock feathers in the back of the pie so that it has the appearance of a peacock when it's sitting on the table," she said.
