Making Merry

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at Museum Bites and today we’re celebrating some of the generous gift givers featured in Christmas lore. Santa Claus, Father Christmas, and Saint Nicholas get top billing. But did you know Father Ice, a mischievous farm elf, and a leather-wearing Santa have all played a role in fostering Christmas cheer? Join me for a brief introduction to these festive folks.

If the Shoe Fits

Imelda Marcos’s were maligned, Michael Jordan’s were initially fined, and a scullery maid turned princess famously left one behind. Today on Museum Bites were kicking up our heels in honor of shoes.

Cheers for Chairs

Today on Museum Bites we’re celebrating the good old reliable and versatile chair. Not only can they be folded, stacked, rocked, reclined and spun, chairs can serve as a handy step stool, makeshift lock, or sought-after commodity in a popular children’s game.

Monster Mash

Old favorites like dragons, Sasquatch, and the Loch Ness monster are on display, but the exhibit also includes a goat-sucking vampire, elephant-devouring bird, and a tobacco-loving cat.  Join me for a brief look at these lesser-known beasties.
