Day 1: Our tour to Omaha gets us into the holiday spirit by allowing us to experience holiday traditions from around the world. This evening we enjoy Christmas in Germany with an authentic German dinner and entertainment presented by members of Omaha’s German American Society. Next three nights in Omaha.
2: We begin our day with a visit to Boys Town where Father Flanagan’s house is decorated for an Irish Christmas. Our next visit is at the Joslyn Art Museum which houses permanent collections of fine art with an emphasis on 19th and 20th century European and American art. During the holiday season the museum hosts local music groups for “Holiday Under Glass" concerts during the noon hour in their atrium. Lunch will be included at the museum. This afternoon we visit Union Station and the Durham Museum. While we visit we can marvel at the huge Christmas tree in their main hall and the smaller trees decorated by different ethnic communities. This evening we visit the Polish Home Omaha where we enjoy dinner and hear about Polish Christmas customs.
3: Our day starts with a local guide taking us on a tour of Omaha. Next we visit St. John’s Greek Orthodox Church, a Byzantine-Style church with its decor of gold and traditional icons. Lunch at the church is prepared by members of the congregation. This afternoon we visit the Omaha Botanical Gardens where thousands of poinsettias with rich, vibrant color fill the floral display hall in a glowing tribute to the holidays. Tonight we plan to attend a Christmas show. The event and venue will be announced when new schedules come out in early 2022.
