The creation, assemblage, and display of Christmas yard decorations for many Americans marks the beginning of the holiday season. For some, this event involves simply stringing lights on outdoor evergreens, hanging a wreath on the front door, and opening the curtains so that the indoor decorations might be visible from the street. For others, it is a complicated process of assembling from a body of symbols those icons that best express the meaning of the holiday and creating, often by hand, a unique expression of their “Christmas spirit." Join USCL Professor and Folklorist Dr. Stephen Criswell for this festive talk.
