It's the most wonderful time of the year, and winter holidays are weeks away. However, Philadelphia's diverse culture is full of families celebrating more than just Christmas.
The National Museum of American Jewish History brings all cultures together with the Being___ at Christmas Annual Day of Family Fun event. The carnival-style event, which returns in person for the first time since 2019, welcomes families of all beliefs and backgrounds together for a day of fun.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Christmas day, the Weitzman Museum will be transformed into a holiday extravaganza, including live music, crafts, movie screenings, and a children's play zone. The celebration costs $15 for adults and $10 for children.
Lolly Hopwood will perform an interactive show for children, including bubbles, balloons, and puppets. There will also be musical performances.
A crafts station will be set up for families to make winter-themed foam sticker picture frames, Hanukkah paper lanterns, and snowflake-beaded charm bracelets.
A play zone will be set up with Legos, blocks, and puzzles for children, and a movie theater will screen several winter movies.
Being ____ at Christmas Annual Day of Family Fun started as an event to honor Jewish culture on the Christmas holiday with the "Being Jewish at Chrismas" event; however, The National Museum of American Jewish History has expanded the event to include all adjectives for you to fill in the blank.
