Tonight between 5:00 & 7:00 the Ocracoke Preservation Society will host its annual wassail party at the museum. We will light the community Christmas tree, sing carols, drink hot cider, and visit with neighbors and friends. The temperature is a balmy 70 degrees, so it won't feel much like winter, but we are getting into the spirit of the season nonetheless.
At 8:00 there will be an Ocrafolk Christmas concert at the Deepwater Theater. We'll enjoy some wonderful music and listen to island tales. I'll be telling the story of the wreck of the British steamship "Ariosto" on Christmas Eve, 1899.
