Moomin Animations: Thrills + Cuddles – Christmas with the Moomins

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 12/11/2021
The Moomins sleep during winter – and so, they don’t know what Christmas is. However, in Tove Jansson’s short story The Fir Tree, the Moomin family is awakened from their winter sleep to encounter Christmas for the first time.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

They are taken aback by all the fuss they encounter when everybody is rushing to prepare for the big day. And yet, in typical Moomin fashion, they stumble on the true meaning of this festival. If you pay attention, you might learn something very important through this story.
Sit down, get cosy, and listen to a live-reading, followed by discussion, of this wonderful Christmas story. Then learn more about holiday traditions in Finland.

Recommended ages: 3+ (Please note, this event is for children.)
Duration: 30 minutes
