Meet Father Christmas
dec 3 & 17, 2023 at 1:00 PM
Once again in the merry Winter Solstice season, Olde Father Christmas will be visiting Barjon’s Books in Billings and allowing his jolly self to be photographed with you, your family and friends!
Father Christmas encourages a donation of $5 - $10 for each photo, which will go to support the work of local non-profit educational organization MusEco Media and Education Project (www.MusEco.org).
Many Christmas traditions originated in Europe then were woven together to bring us our contemporary Christmas: the Christmas tree, gift exchanges, holly & ivy, lights, wreaths, and Olde Father Christmas himself. Each celebrates the fact that in the bitter cold of winter, as the days are shortest and the nights their longest, the Sun is “reborn” on the Winter Solstice to welcome a New Year! (The Winter Solstice is the shortest day and longest night of the year.)
Come join us and immerse yourself in a bit of the history that brought us to the fun and frolic of the Christmas of today! Your Father Christmas photos can be used for holiday cards, emails and/or social media.
