“Oh? Christmas Tree!” Holiday Exhibit

November 21-January 3, Public hours

This holiday season, you can enter Fort Wayne’s Botanical Conservatory to discover a grand array of Christmas “trees.” From the Polish upside-down tree to the Caribbean charamico, from the log used   in the Catalonian tió de nadal to the Italian ceppo shelf, there is a world of holiday tradition associated directly or loosely with the tree. Enjoy this glimpse into some of the more unfamiliar Christmas traditions and symbolism from around the globe as you stroll through the Atrium, Garden Gallery, Showcase Garden, and beyond. The Conservatory’s own colorful, 12’ tall poinsettia “tree,” in a sea of color and beauty, is one of this city’s annual “tree” traditions. Join us for this salute to holiday history and celebration. Sponsored by Majic 95.1 WAJI, PBS39 and the Auer Foundation.
