Happy Birthday

A Joseph Smith Birthday Party 

I read this article about a group of seminary students in Portsmouth that recreated that Nauvoo party.

"When the first guests walked up the snowy path to the home of Dell and Laura Fox on December 23, 15 costumed teenagers were still running upstairs and down, checking fireplaces, whipping cream, arranging ringlets, and threading yarn through oversized needles. Our “Joseph Smith Birthday Party” was the culmination of four months of study in our Church history course. Early in the fall we began collecting ideas and materials. We wanted everything—food, costumes, games, program—to be as true to the period 1805–1844 as possible. "

Its a great article I hope you will take the time to give it a read. 

Happy Birthday Joseph Smith!
