Meijer Garden

Yesterday Petey and I went to Meijer Garden to see how they get their Christmas on.  There were trees and displays  decorated in the customs and traditions of countries around the world.

Some of the photos aren't as sharp (used my phone) as I would have liked but you will still get a glimpse of how beautiful the place looked.  Feel free to click on the images to make them "pop" a bit.

A native Michigan tree

A pretty wreath above the entryway. 

Instead of putting cookies out for Santa like we do, the children set their shoes out filled with nuts and fruit.

This nativity looked hand painted.  The colors were so beautiful.

No candy in this pinata - ask me how I know.

This scene was quite large so I tried to zoom in for the small nativity above.

Click on the "Eid ul-Fitr" for a brief description of the 2 pics below it.

This tree was rather tall and skinny and inside a glass case so it didn't photograph well.

I believe these were made of paper.

I think these ornaments were made from straw.

These were made with wood shavings and sticks.

This was sanskrit inside a large case.  I had to stand on my tippy toes to get a decent shot because it was flat on the floor.

Please ignore this gap.  If I try to start moving stuff around all hell breaks out.  Keep going for more pics.

Fuzzy shot.  Too bad because these were really pretty.

What a nice way to spend some time cruising the world and learning about their traditions.
