Ghosts of Christmas Past.. An Ebenezer Scrooge evening

Do some thing special for a Christmas present to yourself and your loved ones!
Come out and enjoy this enchanted holiday evening at the Historic 1937 Courthouse & Jail.
Come upstairs to the old courtroom, help yourself to the Christmas cookies, hot chocolate, hot teas and complimentary wine, and get comfortable in your seats while listening to the old time Christmas music from the 30's and 40's.
Your evening presenter will welcome you, the lights will dim, and the Ebenezer Scrooge whimsical skit will begin!
The story's narrator will tell you about, mean old, crotchety Scrooge, getting ready to retire for the evening, and his ghostly encounter!
Scrooge is visited by the  3rd ghost of Christmas future to  "encourage" him  to change his mean, selfish old ways, or else!
After the skit , the guests, (and the cast), will be issued led candles and the tour of the haunted, 1937 Courthouse and  Jail begins!
We will take you up to the roof top to enjoy the beautiful night sky of Las Cruces, and get your group picture taken under the large Christmas wreath on the old bell tower.
 We will then begin your descent into the dark corridors and hallways of the Courthouse until we come to the doors of the old jail.  Prepare yourself as we guide your group through the gloomy and foreboding jail, pausing in some of the cells to tell you what paranormal activities have been recorded there by the Ghosts of Christmas past. 
 We will conclude our evening by making our way back up to the courtroom for refreshments before we say Merry Christmas and goodnight!!
We will also have Christmas stockings that you can put your name on, if you wish to leave a donation that will be presented with your Christmas stocking, to the local Alzheimer's Association! (100% of donations will be given to the Alzheimer's Assoc.!)
