Winterthur opens holiday show with focus on lights
The museum that once was Henry Francis du Pont’s country mansion has opened its annual holiday decorations display. The show had a soft opening Saturday and will run through Jan. 5.
The News Journal reports this year’s “Yuletide at Winterthur” show celebrates holiday lighting traditions, such as the Swedish-American tradition of decorating a tin candelabra with fringed paper in the early 20th century.
Winterthur has made a specialty in its celebration of American Christmas traditions as a museum of decorative arts.
