December 20, 2012 by  

The Season of Light is a perfect opportunity for people aged six and up to learn more about the world’s most endearing holiday seasons and customs, as being presented by through a holiday planetarium. It will allow them to learn more about which of these traditions and customs were involved with lighting up the snowy season. There is a spectacular display open to families and it is a great way to share time with loved ones.

During the Season of Light display, people will learn all about the lights that make the Christmas season sparkle to life, including the Christmas tree lights, Yule logs, and everything else that glows and creates the warm feelings of the season. This display recounts the cultural rituals and historical religious celebrations from around the world and takes a look at gift giving, decking the halls, smooching under the mistletoe, Santa Claus, St. Nicholas, and Father Christmas, who will be dropping by for a visit as well. There will be information on the ‘Star of Bethlehem’, explained from an astronomical point of view, as well as information on planets, supernovae, comets, and much more. The Season of Light lasts approximately 40 minutes.

The Planetarium may have used poster printing, or maybe flyer printing, to share the information about this museum’s display with the people from this community. Tickets cost $5 per person. The Season of Light will be occurring on Saturday, December 22 and Sunday, December 23 from 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm at the Newark Museum located at 49 Washington Street in Newark, New Jersey.
