Smart Living Weekly – December 10, 2014



Experience Cultural Holiday Traditions

Right in Our Region:
We all have our own special holiday traditions, and often, they’re based on our ethnic heritage, which we naturally commemorate this time of year, when families often gather together to celebrate. Thanks to a collaboration among three Rockford museums, we can discover the seasonal customs and traditions of several cultures, at Holiday Happenings, Dec. 14, noon-4 p.m. For one price, visitors can experience the sights, sounds, scents and tastes of immigrant groups that helped to settle Rockford, at Tinker Swiss Cottage, Ethnic Heritage Museum and the Erlander Home. Each museum will be decorated in a manner befitting its subject: Victorian for Tinker Swiss Cottage; Swedish for Erlander; and six different cultures at the Ethnic Heritage Museum.Open your e-magazine now to learn more about Cultural Holiday Traditions.
