season of light posterSeason of Light traces the history and development of many of the world’s most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season — from the burning Yule log, sparkling Christmas tree lights and candles in windows, to the lighting of luminarias in the American Southwest and the traditional ritual of the Hanukkah Menorah.  The show also recounts the historical, religious, and cultural rituals practiced during the time of winter solstice — not only Christian and Jewish, but also Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican and Hopi.

This show runs about 35 minutes and is appropriate for ages 8 and up.

Shows at 4:15 pm on Dec. 19, 20, 21 and 22, and at 7 pm on Dec. 16, 23, and 30.

This show runs about 40 minutes and is appropriate for 7th grade and older.
