>>>Christmas Contra dance w/various Callers & Musicians at the Town Hall ~ Nelson, NH ~ 8PM,
603-827-3044 or www.monadnockfolk.org
It’s the 19th annual Christmas Night dance at the Nelson Town Hall. Festivities begin at 8:00 pm. We’ll stop dancing early because there will be a dessert potluck afterwards so bring treats. Admission is free — the Monadnock Folklore Society sponsors this dance as a gift to the community.

Once upon a time, in the town of Nelson, a wonderful tradition was born.

Some years ago or so, the callers and dancers at a Monday Nite Contra Dance realized that Christmas was going to fall on a Monday that year. Imagine the dilemma! Nelson has always held a public contra dance on Monday nights. If they were to skip Christmas, then the world record would end. Not wishing to jeopardize the record, and wishing to see good friends and family again, the tradition began!

It’s a Christmas night dance. It starts at the usual 8pm time. This year it will probably be Carol Compton on piano and we’ll shed a tear for Bob McQuillen. Amy Cann will be on fiddle. It’s always a good night!

"One year we had three feet of snow. But Bob McQuillen drove up for the dance, Don Primrose showed up to call and there was a family visiting from New York that wanted to dance on Christmas Day. We couldn’t get into the hall because of the snow, so we moved the furniture from our living room and
Bob played his accordion. That night was my favorite of all the Christmas dances.”

This story about one of Nelson’s traditions was submitted by Val Van Meier.
