Cold weather steers the focus from Cheekwood's sprawling gardens to its august mansion and a series of holiday-related programs for families. On Nov. 28, a forest of evergreens springs up throughout the art museum, with each lavishly decorated tree recalling a classic Christmas tale, such as The Night Before Christmas, The Nutcracker or The Polar Express. For the next five weeks, the mansion, museum and learning center buzz with festive activities, including breakfast with Santa on Nov. 29, gingerbread workshops for adults and families, Martinis & Mistletoe cocktails, live music on weekends and storytelling and cookie-decorating on Saturdays.
