NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Hermitage is offering evening tours for the holidays.

President Andrew Jackson's home will be decorated for a Jacksonian Christmas as historical interpreters guide guests through the mansion.

The after-hours tours are designed to give visitors a personal look into what Christmas would have been like for the seventh President. Guests on the night tours will learn why the Jackson family never had a Christmas tree and why firecrackers were an important part of the festivities.

The tours are on Dec. 5, 12 and 19, beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
