Holiday Program 2013 Schedule
Our holiday shows this year will take place December 18, 19 and 20th at 7PM and 8:30PM. The program is a slide-based program which discusses the various traditions surrounding the holidays, starting with the original Roman solstice celebrations and leads into why we have Christmas trees and Santa Claus. The final part of the show discusses the Christmas star and what sort of object the claimed star might have been. Shows are intended for a general audience, first-come first served. Shows last about 45 minutes. $3/person, flat rate.
