Crèches of Germany: Tradition and Faith at the Knights of Columbus Museum
Crèches of Germany: Tradition and Faith
Nov. 19, 2016 – Jan. 29, 2017
Germany is a country of picturesque landscapes and charming villages, but also of deeply-rooted ancestral culture. Christmas is a significant holiday in Christianity, and it is lived and celebrated in Germany with a solemnity that finds few parallels. Germans cherish customs, rituals and beliefs and faithfully pass them from generation to generation. Christmas folklore is a part of the country’s popular heritage.
The Knights of Columbus Museum’s 12th annual Christmas exhibition, Crèches of Germany: Tradition & Faith, opens Nov. 19 to showcase the German celebration of Christmas in New Haven!
