(Dec. 1, 2009)--The Institute of Texan Cultures will host the "Family Holiday Celebration" from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 5. The day of family-friendly activities will include a performance of seasonal music by the Alamo City Men's Chorale; storytelling about holiday traditions, folklore and fables; and make-and-take crafts.

The institute is getting into the holiday spirit with a display of two century-old nativities painted by Ferdinand Pribyl, a display of historic photographs of rare Texas snowscapes and the lighting of a giant Christmas tree with thousands of lights and decorations.

Additionally, the institute has issued its first ornament, a small three-dimensional diorama of the building and flag plaza. A limited quantity of ornaments will be in stock and available for purchase at the museum store.
