Season of Light explores the astronomical meanings behind seasonal traditions, including the “Star over Bethlehem,” and historical religious and cultural rituals from Christian, Jewish, Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican, and Hopi traditions. It also takes a look at some light-hearted seasonal traditions: from gift-giving and kissing under the mistletoe, to songs about lords a-leaping and ladies dancing, and the custom of decking the halls with greenery and candles. St. Nicholas, Sinterklaas, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, and Santa Claus all drop by as well. Age 7 and up.
