NEW YEAR'S "CALLS"

Thu Jan 04 2018 (01:12:12)

It was a very popular custom, during the 19th century, for people to make a short visit to their friends and neighbors on New Year’s day or eve. In this episode, we will discuss that tradition, and our own effort to revive it, here in the internet age.
