Winter: Season of Darkness and Light

This 1997 KET production, designed for students in grades 4-12, is a multicultural exploration of the way the winter season is celebrated in this country by various cultures and how these celebrations have been changed, merged, assimilated, or forgotten over generations. Through music and stories, artists from across the country explain the traditions associated with Christmas, Chanukah (Jewish), Kwanzaa (African-American), Las Posadas (Chicano), and the European/Appalachian mummer's play.
