PLANETARIUM: Season of Light
December 6 2012 9:00pm
“Season of Light” examines Celtic, Pagan, Nordic, Roman, Egyptian and Hopi solstice rituals along with Jewish and Christian practices, including the possible astronomical explanations for the “Star of Bethlehem.” The program will also explore some of the more light-hearted seasonal traditions, like gift giving, kissing under the mistletoe, decking the halls with greenery and candles, and songs about lords a-leaping and ladies dancing. The legends and customs of St. Nicholas, Sinterklaas, Kris Kringle and Father Christmas will be explained while Santa Clause drops in for a visit.
Admission: $3 for adults, $2 for children, senior citizens, and activity military. There is no charge for ASU students, faculty, and staff with university activity card.
