A Little Bit of Argentina in Atlanta

Today’s Winter Wonderland highlight is a display representing Argentina.

In many places and cultures across the globe, Christmas is the time of year when family and friends gather. It is a time to give and share with one another and a time for love.

The ornaments adorning this tree were hand-made by children from the Argentinian community of Atlanta. They were designed as a means of sharing their culture and traditions during this important holiday and as a way of celebrating their “Argentinity.”

Fun Fact: Fernbank’s Giants of the Mesozoic features two dinosaurs discovered in Patagonia, Argentina.

At Fernbank Museum, there’s much more than dinosaurs and giant-screen films. Even with our website, e-newsletters, Facebook pages and Twitter updates, there’s still a lot we’d like to share with you. This blog is an opportunity for the people that keep Fernbank running and constantly expanding, to share stories from their point of view. We hope you’ll enjoy these first-hand, behind-the-scenes glimpses of what goes into keeping a world-class natural history museum running. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on these stories, to hear your personal experiences and hear any suggestions for topics. Happy reading!
