NO SUB ZEROS HERE. After Thursday's tryptophan haze, waddle to Historic St. Mary's City to see what someone else's home looked like for the holidays (and perhaps pick up a new appreciation for Aunt Edna's cooking). Hearth and Home in Early Maryland ( Nov. 26-27), an interactive event at the living history museum, transports visitors to the 17th century to see how folks at the Woodland Indian Hamlet and Godiah Spray Tobacco Plantation prepared for the onset of winter way before refrigeration and supermarkets. After this weekend's butter churning, corn grinding and cooking-over-flames demos, exhibits close until mid-March.

10 am. to 5 p.m. $7.50. About 1 hour 45 minutes from the Beltway in Historic St. Mary's City, Md. 800-762-1634, www.stmaryscity.org.
