PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: December 21

Presents the video “The Real Story of Christmas” on Friday, December 21, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Christmas is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two millennia, people around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature. Christians celebrate Christmas Day as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. Sponsored by the WHOI Visitor Center. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: December 22

The library will be holding the first of its winter “Crafternoons” on Saturday, December 22, at 3 p.m., in a craft planned specially for the Winter Solstice.  Participants will make “luminarias,” candle holders of small glass jars with colorful tissue paper glued to their outside surface. They will provide cheery colorful light to dispel the short, dark days of winter. The luminaria, or farolito, is a small paper lantern (commonly a candle set in some sand inside a paper bag) which is traditional in southwest United States at Christmas time, especially on Christmas Eve. The library’s flame-proof version is perfect for lighting up the dark and giving as gifts! This craft is so simple, yet satisfying. It will be open to all ages, with no early registration necessary. For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961.
