Merry Christmas!

Holiday Greetings from Philip Howard and the entire staff of Village Craftsmen!

We wish you the Merriest Christmas filled with love, peace, and good cheer.

This is also the season of the Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. May we all live in peace and harmony.

As in the past, we will be taking a short break from posting on this blog in order to enjoy time with family and friends over the holiday season. However, we may post now and then on Facebook, so please continue to follow us there.

Be sure to check back with us on January 9 for more history, news, and stories about Ocracoke Island. And, of course, we wish all of our readers, family, friends, neighbors, and visitors a Happy New Year with all good things in 2017.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is Capt. Rob Temple's poem, "A Pirate's Christmas." You can read it hear:
