Enjoy “Season of Light” at Young Harris College’s O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium
YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. — “Season of Light,” a special holiday presentation in Young Harris College’s O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium, will take place Friday, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. and Friday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. This perennial holiday favorite is a show about the coldest and darkest of seasons—a time that holds some of the warmest and brightest celebrations of the year. Narrated by NPR’s Noah Adams, the show explores the traditions surrounding the world’s most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season—from the burning Yule log and the lighting of luminarias to sparkling Christmas tree lights and candles in windows. The program also explores possible astronomical explanations for the star that led the Wise Men to Bethlehem. Come and celebrate the season through the wonder of the planetarium’s star-filled sky.
