Ring in the holiday season with a journey through more than 50 decorated trees and displays, each adorned according to holiday customs from around the world!
With the theme, “Dashing through the Snow,” it is no surprise that this year’s Christmas Around the World celebration pays homage to winter’s most celebrated and chilly companion: snow. With flake under foot, explore the Museum of Science and Industry’s Grand Tree in the Rotunda. Snow and ice crystals grace the branches with iridescent purple, blue and silver hues.
Warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and then walk through the parade of trees, which will take you from India to Ireland to Icelandjust to name a few. Welcome additions to the exhibit this year are the Italian tree and the Thailand tree. And, don’t miss out on our spectacular line-up of traditional ethnic musical and dance performances that express the rich tapestry of winter holiday traditions.
