Christmas Around the World
December 4 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Many Americans celebrate the birth of Christ at church on Christmas, and decorate the outside of their homes with lights and the inside with a tree. They offer gifts to loved ones, they hang stockings and they leave cookies and milk out for Santa on Christmas Eve. But how is Christmas celebrated elsewhere around the world?
Join historian and musician Tim Wilsey for this interesting presentation about different Christmas customs, the origin of Christmas traditions and share in the Christmas season. You may learn about shoes under the Christmas tree in France, a bonfire made of thorn bushes in Iran, Santa in a blue rather than red suit in South Korea, the origins of poinsettia plants and much more!
Join us for light refreshments on Monday, December 4, 2017 at 2 p.m.
