Christmas Around the World at the Museum of Science and Industry
No one does Christmas quite like the Museum of Science and Industry. That’s one of the things I love so much about living in Chicago, the city really does go all out during the holidays. One of my favorite holiday traditions is visiting the Christmas Around the World exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. I’ve been visiting this exhibit since I was a little girl. Usually my school would take a field trip to the museum during December to see the exhibit, but field trip or not, my family always made sure to make a special trip to see this exhibit!

So today, I wanted to share a few (who am I kidding this post has over 200 photos) photos from my visit a few weeks ago! Warning, this post is VERY photo heavy. So like Scar would say… BE PREPARED!

When you’re a kid/in school, sure summer is great because you get a three month break, but it’s not like adults get a “summer break.” You still have to go to work (unless you’re a teacher or a job that’s not year round). Maybe it’s because I prefer cooler weather but I just don’t get the appeal of summer. 

Regardless, one thing I DO enjoy about summer is all of the fun events that come to Chicago. The Taste of Chicago, Lollapalooza, countless Broadway shows, fun new exhibits. All of the activities going on throughout the city definitely help distract me from the fact that I dislike summer.

(And boy is there a lot to do in the city!).
