In The News

Offered by: Grace Museum
Program Description:
Where do our holiday traditions come from? In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays do we ever stop to think about why we do things the way we do? Why do we bring trees in our homes? Why do we put lights on them? What is the significant of Christmas ornaments? When did we first hear about St. Nicholas? Has Christmas in America always looked the same way? Discover where some traditions came from, look at artist’s depictions of the holidays, and how other cultures celebrate the season.
