BIEDENHARN MUSEUM & GARDENS PRESENTS PLANTS OF CHRISTMAS PROGRAM

(Monroe, La.) - On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, "Plants of Christmas" program presented by Ralph Calhoun, Executive Director of the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens on Thurs., Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. in the Welcome Room. This event is free to the public.

This Christmas themed program explores the long history of the iconic Christmas tree and eleven other Christmas plants including Poinsettias, Christmas Cactus, and the Christmas Pickle.

"This is a great holiday program," says Ralph Calhoun. "Not only will it get you in the Christmas spirit, but you will learn a lot too and be able to impress your holiday guests with your knowledge."
