Illinois State Museum issued the following announcement on Nov. 21.
Brown Bag Program presented by Erika Holst
Christmas in America wasn't always Santa Claus and Snowmen. Join Curator of Decorative Arts Erika Holst to learn about oddball traditions from two centuries of Christmases past, including creepy cards, chocolate insects, skinny Santa, and Krampas.
Bring your lunch and join us for a different speaker and topic on the third Wednesday of each month. Brown Bag Lectures are held at the ISM Research & Collections Center at 1011 E. Ash St. in Springfield. The Collections Center must be accessed via the gate on Ash Street. For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (217) 558-6696.
