Foto Friday - Grand Rapids Michigan Christmas Traditions
Yes, we have snow in Grand Rapids Michigan already. It came right after Thanksgiving
this year and it gives every scene a holiday touch.
We were at Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park this morning. It has a fresh
blanket of white which softens the landscape and decorates nature with a deft hand.
In contrast, the tropical garden inside is abloom with orchids and other tropical plants.
We browsed the Christmas Trees from Around the World with awe and delight.
The colorful paper ornaments on the Mexico Christmas Tree were so bright and cheerful.
Kwanza items and decorations are gathered here to honor holiday celebrations around
Nutcrackers galore on the German Christmas Tree and delicate glass ornaments on the
Christmas Tree from Austria.
The Swedish Christmas Tree is filled with wooden carved ornaments and tiny Jule candles.
The Christmas Tree from Africa is unusual and unique, filled with African crafts and symbols.
Embracing many cultures, this Vietnamese Tet Shrine is symbolic of Vietnam's biggest
holiday, celebrating the coming New Year.
The Native American Christmas Tree is filled with hand made ornaments celebrating the
Native American crafts and culture.
Poinsettias, colorful feathers and birds decorates the Christmas Tree from Brazil.
The tree-like beams that support the covered entrance to the Meijer Gardens
are shown here with all their holiday splendor.
We hope you enjoyed the brief tour through the Meijer Gardens and a few of the festive
Christmas Trees from Around the World. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from
Grand Rapids Michigan!
